Remembering Service – November 2014

Once a funeral service has taken place, there is a perception that we should be able to ‘get back to normal’. In reality, if we have lost someone very close to us, then life will never be the same again – it will be different. Over time we go through the long process of bereavement, and we still think of the one we have lost a great deal. It can be helpful to have a time and place where we can go, and where it is alright to acknowledge that we are still grieving, to be open about our low times and not to have to put on a brave face.
