I'm glad you're here. As I continue to go through the grieving process of losing my husband, and I speak with others in the same situation, I realize that no matter how well you plan, when that horrible day comes and you lose someone, nothing prepares you for the feelings you're having. If the death was sudden, there are even more emotions to deal with. Whether it's from an on-going illness, recurring disease, accident, or COVID, losing the one you love and have built a life with is indescribable. In my journey, I'm realizing how many people, usually women, are in the same place. The first few days are overwhelming, and setting priorities seems impossible. Where do we start?
Let's start here: if you have come to this site because you have lost your loved one, please accept my condolences. There are no words I can say to ease that grief, but maybe you can find some answers here for the multitude of things you will need to do, and some comfort in knowing that someone is on the same path, either just ahead of you, or just behind you.
There are many organizations and websites that offer help with the grieving process and provide information, but the information is usually specific to that organization. This site is not meant to take the place of any of these. Instead, I'm trying to put information you might need in one place to make things a little easier. If you are currently tending to a partner or spouse in hospice or terminal care, this is information you will need soon. Maybe getting prepared now will help later.
