Morning and youYou have just lost a loved one and perhaps you will enter a difficult period, a time of separation, of adjustment. A time of mourning.

In the past, those in mourning were dressed in black or white, wore a black armband, a button on the lapel and everybody knew they were going through a painful time and recognized it.
Today there are fewer external signs, but the inner reality remains.

This informations is intended primarily for those most affected. We want to give them some points of reference when they enter this period of mourning. You will recognize for yourself some of the feelings, some of the situations described, others will mean nothing to you. Each individual is different and reactions to the loss of a loved one vary greatly.

You will discover that these emotions experienced will help you reconnect with life and carry on.

Carry on... it’s easier to say than do. But you have to carry on bearing on your own the load that you spent so many years bearing together. People tell you: life goes on. It’s true: at the beginning, it’s life that drives us
