Grief & Healing
We all handle the loss of loved ones in our own way and in our own time. However, there are common feelings of grief that many people go through on their road to healing. When you understand and come to grips with what is normal, this time of loss and suffering may become easier.
Grief varies depending upon the age of the person who died, how the person died, the relationship with the person, and who else (such as a child or parent) is also grieving the loss.
The important thing to remember is that you are not alone. If you take the time to grieve properly and seek help if needed, you will get through this difficult time.
Funeral providers are called upon to provide comfort for the grief-stricken, offering compassionate care, helpful resources, and access to qualified professionals amid times of great suffering. To that end, Vaughn Greene Funeral Services is now offering grief counseling and other mental health services to the greater Baltimore community in collaboration with Leslie Holley, a celebrated, nationally-certified Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor.
Our “Healing Hearts Program” will include regular social media posts, monthly blog articles, and quarterly workshops. All are provided to help our community learn about the grief cycle and how to move through the grieving process in a healthy way.
These services are offered at no additional charge as part of the continuity of care represented in every package provided by Vaughn Greene Funeral Services.
