When Someone You Love Dies

Grief is a normal emotional response to the loss of a loved one. As much as one would like to avoid dealing with grief, it is important to acknowledge the death and the feelings associated with it. Acknowledging grief is the process in which you begin to work towards accepting the reality of the loss and adjusting to life without the deceased.

Working through grief can be a long and difficult journey. It is one in which you begin to “move forward” rather than “move on.” It is about accepting and reconciling your loss and working to remember and honor your loved one as you adapt to your new “normal.”
