Ranging reporter J.R. Ortega was at Ramsey's Restaurant talking to people about dealing with grief, especially during the holidays.

I've only been at the Advocate a year and a half, but I'm making it a tradition to do a holiday grief story each December.

This month's family opened up their lives for the sake of their own closure as well as the sake for others who may be going through the same thing.

You can read it in Wednesday's Good Living section.

Here is what people had to say:
