Grief is too often this way. We are never fully ready for its visit. And often we are simply shocked and overwhelmed by the passing of someone so close to our hearts. Someone with whom we shared goals,
values, adventures, fears, and triumphs, big and small. A loss like this is the loss of a precious and rare resource, a closeness that is supplied to each of us in limited amounts, even though the hole it leaves feels so vast. We are right to treasure this closeness.

There are rituals and there are details, but as difficult as those are, your feelings of emptiness are even harder to survive. Nothing can “get back” or be gotten back. Yet there are ways to see beyond.

This organization was born out of grief such as this. We know that doesn’t mean anyone fully understands your grieving. But we think you will find it useful as a place of compassion, understanding, self-help and even healing. You can begin exploring the opportunities for healing from the links below:
