After Loss

Life After Death: Returning to Work After the Loss of a Loved One

Death is the ultimate loss. After a loved one departs from this world, we experience immense grief and sadness. How are we supposed to carry on with life after this type of loss? What can we expect in the days, weeks, and months following the funeral?
