“There is a time and a season to everything under heaven… and a time to mourn.”
When anyone faces death, it can create a void in one’s life. This is especially true if that person was close family, a mentor, or both. Some people act like not speaking of the sorrow will make it go away. But in actuality, it makes it worse. Not being able to share ones memories, ones grief, and the joy in knowing the person is not forgotten, only can make it worse.
Let those who mourn share their sorrows, hold memorial fund raisers for something the lost loved one took part in, and encourage the ones grieving by sharing your own memories of the lost one… or if you did not know them… then listen to their stories with an open heart.
I know for me, and those I have lost, doing this has aided me greatly....
