Grief Support

A few things to remember as you begin to recover from a loss:

Each of us experiences grief differently, depending on our coping style and life experiences.

The healing process happens gradually, and can’t be rushed or ignored.

It’s okay to cry…but it’s also okay if you find that you can’t. Crying is a normal response to sadness, but it’s not the only one.

There’s no set time frame for grieving, and different individuals may take different amounts of time to heal.

Allow yourself to face your feelings and express them. Try talking to a trusted friend or spiritual leader, joining a support group, or writing about your loss in a journal.

The mind and body are deeply connected. Though it may be hard at first, remember to take care of yourself physically so that you can allow yourself to begin to recover emotionally.

It’s always okay to seek professional help when you need to.


In addition to the bereavement services for the families we serve,  we have provided some helpful grief support links below:
