Death is a part of life; grief will eventually touch each one of us. It is a universal experience. Mourning the loss of a loved one can be one of the most painful experiences we go through. When a significant person in our life dies, we are often catapulted into a world of confusion and unbelievable emotional pain. Everything can change: relationships, health, daily routines, finances, living arrangements, even our very self. Each person’s journey through grief is unique. The world of grief is often a secret place, misunderstood by those around us who have not yet experienced this pain. Walking the path of heartache with others who have previously navigated this road can ease our burden. These fellow travelers can provide a listening ear, helping us cope with this difficult time, lifting our spirit. They remind us, You are not alone; it is necessary to let yourself grieve.
