Find guidance and support with Caring Circle
When someone in your life dies, it is among the most difficult experiences. Understanding grief and learning how to
cope can help you heal and move forward with your life.
What is grief and mourning?
Grief is all of the feelings you have when someone dies. Mourning is expressing those feelings outwardly. It can
show itself in many ways and figuring out how to process through your grief is important. There is no right or wrong
way to grieve, or time limit on how long it will take to find a new normal without your person.
Whether experiencing anticipatory grief or grief after a death, it may be difficult to know where to seek support.
Caring Circle and Lory’s Place are here to help you navigate your way through grief and to begin healing.
