Grief is a journey which is different for everyone, but we could all use a little extra support to help us cope sometimes. Losing someone special is incredibly difficult so if you or someone you know is struggling, please know that this is completely normal. You are not alone.
“Grief is the price we pay for love”Dr Colin Murray Parkes
