Consider,These houghts by Debbie J. Thompson Owner/Funeral Director/CPC CONFRONTING DEATH When suddenly confronted with the death of a loved one, it is necessary to go through the grieving process, which doesn't follow a fixed pattern. As such, each person must grieve in his or her own way and in his or her own time. There is no special time on the calendar when we can point and say that grief is over. Grief is also work, in that people must "work through" their grief, which can be a painful process. Grief can hurt as much, or more, than a physical wound. Fortunately, wounds heal. In the end, we do not "get over" the death of a loved one. We learn to live with the fact of his or her death. Grieving is an intensely emotional time and is often characterized by confusion, forgetting the "little things" occurring at this time, and fear connected with facing life without the person lost. That is why it is important to be patient and understanding. Just being present for support can help. Regardless of the situation, the only effective way of helping others grieve is to allow them to do it in their own way and in their own time.
