Ann-Marie MacDonald

(From her 2003 novel, The Way the Crow Flies.)

When a parent dies, a planet disappears, and the night sky will never look the same again . . . 

And when both are gone, it's as though we are permanently without a roof -- invisible shield, first line of defense between ourselves and mortality, gone.
