Continuing your loved ones legacy
When someone you love dies you may decide to continue their legacy. You can raise money for a cause they were passionate about, promote their story to inspire others either publicly or in the family or continue a business or hobby they loved.
Coping with grief
Every persons experience and journey of grief is different. The stages of death are rarely linear and the belief you will 'get over death' is an outdated concept that most people realise is not a reality, a more helpful way to view grief is something that you become more accustomed to.
