Coping with grief and loss is an ongoing struggle; stories shared by listeners on the Redi Tlhabi show are proof of this.
A flood of touching calls came in about overcoming the death of a loved one.
Listeners spoke about the difficulty of forgiving the perpetrators who killed their family members, the lack of remorse some perpetrators show and the scenarios of meeting perpetrators face to face.

@RediTlhabi forgiveness is a virtue of the brave but it takes time— Pauline Snaith (@Paulinebritney) November 6, 2015
@RediTlhabi after listening to these two callers...I will NEVER expect anyone to forgive someone for taking the life of their loved one.— Kesitilwe (@KesiMolefe) November 6, 2015
@RediTlhabi topic about facing a perpetrator who took your loved one's life is so deep. I've no idea how i'd deal, but i'd want to forgive.— Renda_Murena (@rendaniratshi) November 6, 2015
@RediTlhabi the strange thing about forgiveness is that if you don't forgive then healing seems to be elusive also for you as the victim;— #TheQueenHerself (@ccc_diva) November 6, 2015
