When You Can’t Attend the Funeral

Twice this week people shared their recent funeral experiences with me. They were either the only attendee at the funeral or they were unable to attend at all.

“The rituals around death are so important for healthy grief… Grief is a time of connection. We’ve always been able to…gather for a funeral. All that is gone.” – David Kessler, co-author of, “On Grief and Grieving”

This is the grim face of grief and loss in the age of coronavirus.

How can we respond to the new realities of saying goodbye and comforting one another?

Here’s an excellent article my team found. I’m grateful for their caring and am passing this on to you.

Love all around, above, below, to the left and to the right, before you and behind you,

P.S. – Don’t forget to breathe this week.
