The Process of Bereavement
"Grieving is the emotion, mourning is the expression, the package is bereavement, " says Chaplain Jim Johnston of Sanctuary Hospice. Losing a loved often brings with it a roller coaster ride of emotions that can last a long time. Johnston tells "Your Turn to Care" that many of us who encounter a person in mourning do not know how to respond or offer comfort. The chaplain offers help, suggesting practical ways to show you care and help the person through the grieving process.
