“Circle of Grief”
By Rita Hoff
St. Patrick of Heatherdowns Bereavement Team

Life changes when we lose someone we dearly loved. How do we go about redefining our lives after a crisis has changed us and the life we had before? We will begin to feel and then ex-plore those feelings. As some time has passed, we try to let go, and begin to embrace our grief. Eventually we begin to live our lives again.
