I'm Grieving, Now What?

The Grief Toolbox is providing our user contributed articles as well as aggregated articles from a variety of blogs. Please join our community and comment on the articles, let us and others know what you found helpful and that you did not. Together we can help each other as well as future travelers on their grief journey. We are also always looking for additional contributors; if you see a topic you would like to share your thoughts on, please submit content.

Despite the similarities in the grief process, each person's grief is unique. The differences stem from your relationship with the deceased, coping skills, support system, and grief history. Your bereavement progresses at its own pace and you will know when it is time to mend your heart.

Losing your parent is hard at any age and it is important for adults to allow themselves the time grieve. This is the eulogy I wish I had delivered at my Dad's funeral but I couldn't find the right words at the time.
