Comfort for Bereavement
At one time or another all of us experience the death of someone we love; a parent, child, spouse, sibling, friend or a beloved pet. We all have stories of grief. No two grief journeys are exactly the same. But professional counselors say there are general stages of bereavement we all experience. Regrettably, we need to deal with the practical aspects when death occurs. Funeral planning, securing airfare, renting a car. I want to provide some tips to make these arrangements easier.
