When there is a death, you may find the following advice helpful:
Don’t rush into organising everything yourself. Accept support and help from family, counsellors and the community (for example, your church group or doctor). Call your Funeral Director for their support and direction. Talk about the life of the deceased and share your experiences of them with others. Each person will have a different relationship and different stories to tell. Write your thoughts down in a journal. Encourage young children to write or draw their memories about the deceased. Give them photographs so they can make their own book.
