It’s not uncommon to begin grieving the loss of someone before they are gone. In fact, it’s so “not uncommon” that there’s a phrase for it: anticipatory grief. Anticipatory grief may be felt by both the loved ones of and the person who is nearing death. It’s important to understand that while anticipatory grief can help pave the way for meaningful conversations between you and the terminally ill, it does not necessarily mean that either of you have given up hope.
