Look for Grief Notes, a new feature on A Way for Hope. These very short bits of information about grief and healing can help people you know. People who are grieving. People who want to comfort them. Perhaps, even you. Find Grief Notes on the sidebar of our blog and, occasionally, as a blog post. If you are using our mobile version, scroll down to the bottom of the page.
How can we help someone who is grieving? Speak openly and honestly.
Example: "I don't know exactly how you feel right now, but I know you are hurting. And I care about you very much."
(Oh, and if you need a resource for a specific situation related to grief and healing, check our Resources page or send us an email describing what you would like to see using the email icon at the far top right of every page or the "Want blog updates?" form in the sidebar on blog pages.)
Way for Hope
Losing someone you love is difficult, but it can mean a lot to hear from others traveling similar paths.
