“Through the mourning process, you are able to acknowledge the reality of death, move toward the pain of the loss, remember the person who died, develop a new self-identity, search for meaning, and receive ongoing support from others” (Funeral Home Customer Service A–Z: Creating Exceptional Experiences for Today’s Family, Alan D. Wolfelt, PhD, 2004).

Grief counseling and support groups offer help to people experiencing loss.  These support and counseling groups are available in our area.
