Depression and loss

Unfortunately, I had to attend a funeral yesterday for a friend of the family.  While I was there, I got to thinking about grief, and how it can lead to depression and other mental illness.  I was also thinking about the stages of grief, specifically "acceptance," and what exactly "acceptance" means.

What does "acceptance" mean to you?  When does grief become depression?  And is there really a difference, in some instances?
