    Perhaps you did hold him and guilt blocked the memory later. Or maybe
    you were just trying to protect yourself. I've found that most of the strange
    stories around a death somehow involved the bereaved trying to protect
    themselves. We cannot gauge the depth of pain another human being is
    capable of experiencing; so we must forgive their occasional weakness
    because it might be necessary for their survival.
