For most people who have lost a loved one, the grieving process does not end at the conclusion of the funeral service—for many, the journey through grief and bereavement is just beginning at this time. This can be a lonely experience, filled with more questions than answers. However, during this journey, it is important to remember that your feelings are normal, and that many have taken this journey through grief before you.
Just like your grief, our work at A. Carr & Son Funeral Home does not end with the funeral. We are there to support you in your bereavement, and we aim to serve as a resource for you during this process. We hope that these publications will help you find solace, strategies for coping, and an explanation of what to expect during the process.
Please feel free to share this literature with anyone who may find it helpful.
