Your loved one has died. Life is suddenly different. Things may feel difficult. You have things to do, and you could use some support. Maybe you have no one to ask. Or, maybe you have lots of offers that are kind but overwhelming.
People in mourning need support.
I'll help you in 3 main ways:
Informational You are mourning, and your to-do list is longer than ever. I can take on some tasks, so you can conserve your time and energy. I will research and compare options for you, whether you are looking at funeral homes, caterers, florists, celebrants, or hotels for out of town guests. No matter how unique your request, I will do my best to help.
Emotional When you are grieving, it feels good to have relaxed companionship and unconditional support. What do you need right now? We can rest and reflect over a cup of tea. We can talk about what happens when you go to a funeral home, and think through your questions, concerns and budget. Maybe you’d like me to go with you, listen with you, and help you understand your options. Maybe you’d like to check in by phone in the days, weeks and months after your loved one’s death.
Practical People who are mourning find it helpful to have a “point person,” one person in charge of plans and communication with family and others. I will be your point person, keeping track of what needs to be done. I help you with what you need, when you need it, from writing an obituary, to shopping for a guest book, to taking a suit to the cleaner, or picking up dinner.
