“Normal is just a setting on the dryer.”

– Barbara Johnson, author and speaker

“Grief” is a word we hear throughout our entire life, but we never really understand it until we experience it. Grief is a normal response to a loss. It is the way we feel and behave following a death. Grief can be ugly, unforgiving, confusing, and disorienting. It also may be warmed by feelings of peace, comfort or even gratitude. Whatever you feel, know that your feelings are unique to you. Others may have lost a spouse, parent, sibling, grandparent, uncle or friend, but no one can feel exactly as you do.  Each relationship is one of a kind; therefore the response to the loss is equally unique.
