Grief and Coping
When you hold a funeral or memorial service for your loved one, it is the first step in the grieving process. Friends and family get a chance to gather to say goodbyes, and at the same time, they get to share feelings with one another.
There are many stages of grieving such as denial, sadness, anger, depression and loneliness. All of these emotions are natural responses to loss, and you are not abnormal for feeling them. It's important to remember that everyone grieves differently; someone may experience all or a few of these stages in any order. Everyone grieves and deals with the loss of a loved one in their own way.
We not only care about your needs and concerns for the preparation of the deceased's funeral, but we also care for the well being of the loved ones who are left behind grieving.
Your funeral director or our counselor has resources we can offer to help in your grieving process.
