unexpectedly died last Wednesday, and I have not cried once since.
What's wrong with me?"
Monica, a proud and loving mother was stooped over with the weight
of her grief.
By listening to Monica talk about the way in which her son's life
ended, our Director of Grief Education Services, Patrick V. Dean, MEd.,
was able to help her see that her short-term inability to cry was
normal and that the sudden death of her son was abnormal.
Through gentle support and guidance, Patrick was able to help Monica
acknowledge the pain of her loss, understand the normalcy of her
traumatic response preceding grief, and free herself from the burden
she was carrying.
Our Grief Education Services and Programs provide Monica and others
like her with crisis intervention and follow-up grief support after
the death of a loved one.
This FREE service provides comfort,
support, and education about the grief process to our Christian
faithful in their time of need.
