Anticipatory grief is the form of grief that occurs when there is an opportunity to anticipate the death of a loved one (or oneself). It is different from unanticipated grief in the amount of time to "look forward" to death and in its form. It may be affected by such things as the duration and pattern of the illness, by concurrent stresses (financial, social, physical, emotional, developmental, etc. ), periods of uncertainty and (sometimes dreaded) certainty, interactions with sometimes incomprehensible medical personnel, varying support from others. Anticipatory grief involves life from the past, present and that of the future for both the patient and their loved ones.
Grief can be defined as a deep remorse, especially caused by someone's death. When someone passes away, it is normal to be unsettled. Since it is caused by death, most people who lose someone important, they will experience grief and depression. People can experience grief in many different ways. In The Outsiders, one can see how this happens.

Ever since I can remember I have always wanted to make a difference and help anyone in need that I possibly could. From the start of my childhood, I can recall helping my mother care for my great grandparents, so they would be able to live out the rest of their lives from their home, instead of in a nursing home. As a young child it was extremely difficult to live with and watch my loved ones deteriorate as they got older, as their condition got worse and worse, and saw my mother having a difficult time keeping up with caring for both of my great grandparents 24/7, it put a lot of stress on the family.
