After The Funeral

Grief is a natural response to loss. Grief can be identified as the emotional suffering you experience when someone or something you love is taken away. The more significant the loss the more intense the grief will be.

Although the most intense type of grief will normally be related to the death of a spouse, close relative or friend any loss can cause grief.
