Bereavement/Widow Support

724-1255

Here are some thoughts to help you cope with the death of a loved one...

• Give yourself permission to grieve and talk about your loss, your love, happy times and memories.

• Ask for and accept help. Recognize that anger, sadness, loneliness and fear are okay feelings. Your

friends and family want to help but you must let them help you.

• Recognize that other people care but might be uncomfortable and don’t know what to say to you. Be

assertive and help them remember the good times they too shared with your loved one.

• Use this time of change to rid yourself of everything in your life that doesn’t work for you. Don’t do

anything out of a sense of obligation that does not feel good.
