Dealing With Grief and Loss

Grief support and resources

Caring for yourself is not selfish. Whether you are recovering from the death of a loved one, loss of a child, or even the passing of a stranger, grief is a natural part of life.

The period of recovery after loss is different for every person. There is no timetable for grief, so you don’t have to compare yourself with others who have lost loved ones. Your life has changed, and healing in your own way is important for the health of your mind, body, and spirit. It’s normal for some days to be better than others as you mourn.

At Higgins Funeral Home, we strive to provide the resources to help you with the grieving process. Please contact one of our staff if you need guidance towards information, grief support groups, a grief counselor, or other grief support services.
