Journeying alongside

the Grieving

“Most people do not know how to grieve properly and completely following a major loss. We either try to bypass the pain, get busy to forget about it or merely suppress the grief. If we do not deal with the grief in the right way, it will not go away, no matter if the loss is recent or has happened many years ago. We may be able to function but the unresolved grief, like bitterness, will slowly eat into our bodies and in latter years, surface as depression, cancer, ulcers or other mental and physical sicknesses.”

A Community Lecture on grief support of the bereaved by:
