Grief and the Role of the Inner Representation of the Deceased.
Marwit, Samuel J.; Klass, Dennis
Omega: Journal of Death and Dying, v30 n4 p283-98 1994-95
Studied whether memories of deceased play active roles in ongoing lives of survivors. Seventy-one people described a significant death. Four roles were reliably identified and labeled role model, situation specific guidance, values clarification, and remembrance formation. Role adoption was predicted by closeness of relationship and suddenness of death. (JBJ)
