Thanksgiving, Hanukkah, Christmas, and New Year’s can be a very difficult time for people who have experienced the death of someone loved – whether recently or not. Memories of good times and togetherness at the holiday season serve to remind us of our loss. Watching others who are celebrating when you feel overwhelmed, lonely or sad can be very painful.
Holidays force us to realize how much our lives have been changed by the loss of our loved one. Particularly in the first year, many bereaved are left with having to develop new holiday rituals and traditions. The first step in coping with grief at the holidays is to make specific plans to obtain the support that you need. We at Forest Hill Funeral Home and Memorial Park are here to support you!
