July 2017 Bereavement Newsletter

July 2017


The month begins with a BANG—a strong reminder of freedom.  For many, the July 4th celebration means a picnic and fireworks.  Sometimes the real meaning of the holiday is lost.  Freedom can mean different things to different people.  For some it does have the meaning of being able to live as we do in this country.  For others, it may take on a new connotation.  At this time in your life you may view your loved one as having been set free at last from their suffering.  The hardships and illness that led to this time in your life are past, and now you must find a way to go on.  Freeing yourself from living in the past is sometimes very difficult.  Establishing a new norm for your life is essential and often requires energy you may not feel you possess.  Others may be needed to help you along the way to healing.  Don’t be afraid to ask for help.  We are also here to help in any way that we can.  We offer various programs that I hope you will consider.
