The death of someone important to us will probably be one of the most difficult experiences we ever have to face. Grief is what we feel after a significant loss such as bereavement and our feelings of grief can take many forms, including sadness, anger, relief, depression and many others. Everyone experiences grief differently and there is no ‘normal’ or ‘right’ way to grieve. Grief is completely natural after bereavement and people cope with it with help and support either from family or friends, or from an organisation like ours.
