1 Running head: WRITING AN ESSAY AND INCORPORATING RESEARCH ENGL 255, Assignment 4 Death is unavoidable, and people respond to it differently depending on how close they are to the deceased. The most significant and life changing experience in my life was when my father died. My relationship with my father, and how he died, was all what made it very disheartening to me.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
