You're Not Alone

Grieving the loss of someone close to you is as unique as the relationship you had with them. The path you take to grieve this loss is your coping mechanism. To assist you, we provide useful grief recovery resources below for you to establish the groundwork toward navigating through the pain of losing your loved one—all from the privacy of your home.

While there is no "right" or "wrong" way to grieve, allowing yourself to share your grief with others is part of a healthy process of working through your loss. These important opportunities of public expression provide validation of your unique feelings and the relationship you had with your loved one.

This is our invitation to grant yourself permission to spend a few moments right now to begin to understand the emotions you are experiencing.  It is our pledge to you that you're not alone.


The only people capable of UNDERSTANDING grief
are those who walk in grief’s heavy shoes.

The only people capable of SURVIVING grief
are those who allow themselves to
share their grief with others.
