Grief and Healing
“Healing occurs when you let the tears and sorrow flow out and the love and memories flow in” –
Words spoken by a 12 year old boy who lost his Mom.
The grief and sorrow that you feel when a loved one dies is very real and can affect your daily routine. Getting back to normal can take a long time and “normal” may take on a different appearance than what you are used to. We have compiled some resources on grief and healing to help you through your journey.
We offer FREE Bereavement Counselling to help you and your family through this difficult time.
