Life is full of challenges, pitfalls, and troubles; many of which arrive on our doorstep unannounced. Among all of life's hardships, one of the most difficult challenges we will ever face occurs during the loss of a loved one. At such a time, there's no point in saying we're not yet ready; the challenge will not wait. In picturesque terms, the gauntlet has been thrown down; we've been called to action: it's time we must begin coping with grief. But how does one learn to do that? If you're wondering how to cope with grief and want to learn what the experts have to say about handling grief, we encourage you to read any one, or all, of the articles below. If you have any questions about what you read or just wish to speak with our staff, please feel free to call 503-656-9177.
