Grieving allows people to let the person close to them go so they can keep living in a healthy way (American Cancer Society, 2014). Grieving has been described in stages, but it does not really feel that way to the bereaved person who has ups and downs, much like a roller coaster ride.

Dowd also, gives awareness that you shouldn’t be scared to donate your organs dead or alive “Some people don’t because they have irrational fears that the doctor will be so eager to harvest their organs, they’ll receive subpar care after an accident.” I think that it’s very
As the parent with the most direct involvement with her two children, Daisy does hold some responsibility for her son’s disappearance. When the principal at Donny’s high school calls her and requests a meeting, Daisy feels as though she is the one being reprimanded rather than her teenage son. Defensively, she tells the principal Mr. Lanham, “It isn’t that we’re not concerned… we’ve done what we could, whatever we could think of… How are we to know what to believe?” In these lines, Daisy begins to show just how suggestible she is. Like many parents when their children begin to misbehave, Daisy does not know where to begin, but she is completely willing to throw money at the problem in the hopes it will help. At the recommendation of a psychologist who told her Donny was
But in Donald’s case it was the total opposite. He went to the hospital with his mind already made up to die, which goes against what the doctors have being taught to do, and the principle of beneficence. The doctors decided to reject his autonomy because they knew he had an immense possibility of having a happy live and not just simply acting in a paternalistic way. In the end the doctors decisions was the right choice, when Donald stated, “I am enjoying life now, and I’m glad to be alive” (Munson6). Which proves that the doctors knew what they were doing, even though his autonomy might have being rejected; at the end it turned out to be a greater benefit to Donald because he was able to live again as a normal man.
Similarly, in As I Lay Dying, Addie’s death could have brought her family together to complete the task of bringing her body to Jefferson.

For Abigail, Susie is her first daughter and the one who originally made her a mother; the picture makes her feel as though she was punished for not wanting Susie.

But as mournful as loss is, death can also be a blessing. No one wants to see their family member suffer from an illness that is bound to kill them in the end or have to suffer through it themselves. Authors like Carver and Saunders use death in fiction as a way to bring characters closer together. Both Carver and Saunders utilize death as a way to unify family members. After their child was "knocked down by a car" on his way to school, both Ann and Howard travelled to the hospital to see him (Carver 377).
164), he was generous to his father even after he had ran off from home. He was loyal to Daisy whilst away; he even bought a house right across the bay from her. Fitzgerald uses a green light on the end of Daisy’s dock as a symbol of hope, which can be seen from Gatsby’s lawn.
