It’s not easy when you lose a loved one. The loss of a loved one is very emotional and can be very exhausting. Depending on your relationship you may have many different feelings, grief, sadness, regret, anger, relief.. Everyone handles a loss differently and at the same time everyone wants their loved one to be appreciated and remembered, honored and missed.
Wakes and funerals are a way we find closure. It is a time we have to gather with family and friends to say goodbye, say our last words and get some closure. Often times we are still in shock, disbelief or maddened immediately after a loved one has passed, it is still important we participate in the funeral ceremony. If we do not it will most likely be regretted once the reality has set in.
It is also important that we support loved ones in their time of loss.
Here are a few ways to help a love one get through a death in the family:
1. Make sure to be there for the family that has been left behind.
2. Make phone calls to check up on all the family and show your condolences
3. Help the family any way you can in this busy, sad time
4. Send flowers
5. Write a personalized sympathy note card from the heart
