Grief Resources

Grief is the natural and normal reaction to loss of any kind.  Usually when we speak of grief we speak of the death of a loved one.  Some resources to help in dealing with grief include:

Books:

  • On Death and Dying
    by Elisabeth Kubler-Ross
  • When Bad Things Happen to Good People
    by Harold S. Kushner
  • A Grief Observed
    by C. S. Lewis
  • Don’t Take My Grief Away From Me
    by Doug Manning
  • How to Go on Living When Someone You Love Dies
    by Therese A. Rando
  • Why Are the Casseroles Always Tuna?

Organizations:

Memorialization is about healing the people that few people that mourn your loss and recording a little bit of the flavor of your character for the many people who will follow after you.

If you were given only a few square feet on which to tell your whole life story, what would you say? What events, and memories would you include? What would you want your great, great grandchildren to know about you? Pre-need memorials give you the chance to make important decisions about the story of your life.

A scene on a monument can come to life in the thoughts and memories of loved ones. A memorialist (monument builder) can capture your stories in stone so that you and your family can reflect on a life well-lived.
