Grief moves in and out of stages from disbelief and denial, to anger and guilt, to finding a source of comfort, to eventually adjusting to the loss.
Be kind to yourself. Be among people with whom you feel free to be yourself. Set some time apart for quiet remembrance.
Children deal with death in many different ways, and not necessarily in the same manner as adults.
Whatever the nature of your loss, active grieving can help you get through the following months and years.
Be available. Sometimes, people who are grieving do not want to talk or listen, nor do they want you to talk or listen. They simply want you to be there for them.
Grieving is a normal response to a loss. The loss can include the loss of your normal daily routine, the impact of the diagnosis on other family members, and the financial impact of the diagnosis.
