Understanding Grief

Published: November 21, 2019
by Lawrence A. Carnevale, Sr. - Licensed Funeral Director

As a Funeral Director, I am often witness to people experiencing pain and grief due to the loss of someone they love. I have found that everyone has their own journey and their own way of handling a loss. It's incredibly personal. Grieving is a highly individual experience; there’s no right or wrong way to grieve. How you grieve depends on many factors, including your personality and coping style, your life experience, your faith, and how significant the loss was to you. Inevitably, the grieving process takes time. Healing happens gradually; it can’t be forced or hurried—and there is no “normal” timetable for grieving. Some people start to feel better in weeks or months. For others, the grieving process is measured in years. Whatever your grief experience, it’s important to be patient with yourself and allow the process to naturally unfold. The Grondin-Carnevale Funeral Home offers more information to navigate the sometime troubled waters of experiencing a loss. Our website has a page dedicated to grief support for more information. - Lawrence A. Carnevale, Sr.
