Grief Support

the grief process

After the unexpected death of his wife, Irish author C.S. Lewis wrote in A Grief Observed, "No one ever told me that grief felt so like fear. The death of a beloved is an amputation."


Whether the loss of a loved one was sudden and unexpected, or something you knew was coming, you can never truly be prepared for it. At Nelson Family Mortuary, we understand how difficult grief can be. This is why we offer various grief support resources and services to help you with the healing process.

Dealing with grief requires a person to go through a number of different stages. Regardless of which stage you are in, each of the sections listed below can help offer support and guidance. The grieving process is different for every individual with no set timetable to follow. Whether you are seeking advice to help a friend through the process or seeking advice for yourself; the information we’ve put together will help you on your journey of grief recovery.

The Grief Process
