Grief Support

 The first step with coping with the lost of a loved one is having a funeral or memorial service for your loved one. Understand that during this time, family members and friends have the opportunity to say their final farewell to their loved one, share strong emotions and memories and comfort one another through the time of bereavement.

 In the days, weeks, and months following the service, the grieving process is not always put to an end. Some people often still need others to lean upon for understanding, encouragement and guidance. Within the community, local and national support groups are available to assist with coping with the loss of a loved one. 

The purpose of these support groups is to provide a comforting environment for expressing emotions through the phases of the grieving process. To find more information about these support groups, the links to their websites are listed below.
