Grief is not an illness, an ailment or a sign of weakness. It is an emotional, physical and spiritual necessity; the price we pay for love.
The only way to get through grief is to grieve!
Welcome To The Grief Support Web Portal-
There are seven books available for you and your family to easily access 24 hours a day 7 days a week. There are four books in The Family Care Series plus the Holiday Book, the Pet Loss Book and a Planning Guide. It is not uncommon for family members who have lost a loved one to need additional support in dealing with their grief. You are welcome and encouraged to share these books with anyone you feel may benefit from them.
Access to all seven books are provided at no cost to you. When you click a book, you can view and read the book on-line. All of the e-books are viewable on all digital platforms. Begin by clicking any book you would like to view. The books were written to be read at 1,3,6 and 11 months during the first year of grief. We are told that the books are helpful at any time and that many times they are re-read and speak to different needs when they are read. Our hope is that you find them informational and helpful, but most importantly, we hope that you will feel less alone in knowing that some of what you are feeling or experiencing is common during the journey of grief.
