How do you cope with the happy holiday season when you are heartbroken from the death of a loved one? While you are drowning in tears of sadness, it seems that everyone else has forgotten about your loss. The sights, sounds, and smells of the season confront you wherever you go. The rituals of family togetherness, gift giving, decorations, and celebrations really touch the heart of the void that has been left. The reality hits that the holidays you once treasured with your loved one will never be the same. Whether the loss was last week or many years ago, we know that the emotions of grief are heightened during the holiday season.
