An information course on dealing with the loss of a loved one.

Pain is inevitable. But misery is optional.

Anonymous




Your loved one has passed on – this is a devastating loss.

How do I deal with this? How will I live a day-to-day life with this loss?

Life as you knew it will never be the same.

Are you still struggling after the loss? Even after a few years?

How do we do this? How do we live life and not just exist in this world?

One never gets over a loss of a loved one, but one has to continue in this life.
