The dedicated staff at Williams-Cushenberry Funeral Home, LLC in St. Gabriel, LA, understands that losing a loved one is very difficult. Everyone grieves in their own way. We are here to offer a helping hand in your grieving process.
Funeral or Memorial Services
Normally, the first step in the grieving process is a funeral or memorial service. This is an opportunity for loved ones to say their final goodbye, share memories, and offer support to one another. It’s a good time to get closure, say the things you didn’t have a chance to tell them when they were alive, and express your love and other emotions. This is an important step in the grieving process.
Adjusting to Life
In the weeks and months after the death of your loved one, you may continue to grieve. Although life continues, it may not seem like things are getting any better. Continue to lean on your family and friends for support during this difficult time. Adjusting to life after losing a cherished member of the family can be very difficult. There may be many things in your everyday life that reminds you of your loved one. Use this time to reflect on the good memories, using them as positive steps in your recovery journey.
Support groups are also an excellent opportunity to get help with your feelings and emotions. Often times we feel all alone in our grief. Fortunately, there are others out there struggling with it too. Together, with their support, you can sort out your emotions and learn to adjust to life without the dearly departed.
