Even when we think we are prepared for our loved one's death, the enormity of the loss can feel overwhelming. Grieving is tremendously difficult work. Many individuals are surprised by their reactions which might include:
Divorce. Empty nest. Job termination. Break-up. Move. Life cycle changes. Each of these transitions can trigger emotional shock waves. You are not alone if you are hurting. Together we can work on healing the wounds and finding your strength. You don't have to live without joy.

Hold My Hand
by Reba Meyers
Once, your tiny hand in mine,
We walked beside the muddy creek.
My eyes were clear, my heart was young,
My steps were firm and quick.
We listened to the springtime sounds
And plucked the violets from the earth.
We watched the busy ants in mounds
And felt the joy of spring in birth.
Your stubby legs could barely stand
And so, my dear, I held your hand.
Now your strong hand I need.
Now I must follow were you lead.
My hair is gray, my cheeks are pale.
My step, it parallels the snail.
I yearn the joys of spring to clutch
But feel the ache of winter's touch.
This is the way that life is planned.
Oh daughter of mine, please hold my hand.
