Grief Support

After the unexpected death of his wife, acclaimed Irish author C.S. Lewis wrote, in the book, A Grief Observed, "No one ever told me that grief felt so like fear." Attempting to map his sorrow, he captured the essence of bereavement with just eight words: "The death of a beloved is an amputation."

While dealing with grief is not easy, we believe the articles and resources within this section of our website can help. Should you need additional support in grieving your loss, please call us at (440) 942-0700. We will do everything we can to assist you.

 

Dealing with Death and Grief

“The reality is that you will grieve forever," wrote Elizabeth Kubler-Ross and John Kessler, in the book, Life Lessons. "You will not ‘get over’ the loss of a loved one; you will learn to live with it. You will heal and you will rebuild yourself around the loss you have suffered. You will be whole again but you will never be the same. Nor should you be the same nor would you want to.”

The articles listed below can help you begin the transformational process of grief. We suggest that you also review the contents of the other sections within our grief library to further enhance your understanding of the nature of bereavement.
