Love & Loss
Supporting your journey through grief
‘When we love deeply, we mourn deeply; extraordinary grief is an expression of extraordinary love. Grief and love mirror each other; one is not possible without the other’ - J. Cacciatore
‘As far as I can see, grief will never truly end. It may become softer over time, more gentle, and some days will feel sharp. But grief will last as long as loved - forever. It's simply the way the absence of your loved one manifests in your heart. A deep longing, accompanied by the deepest love. Some days, the heavy fog may return, and the next day, it may recede, once again. It's all an ebb and flow, a constant dance of sorrow and joy, pain and sweet love.’ Scribbles and Crumbs
When you lose someone, you feel a whole range of emotions. Each person’s experience will be different, and there’s no right or wrong way to grieve. There is no timetable for how long grief lasts, or how you should feel after a particular time. Talking your feelings through can really help.

Poem - Weep Not For Me
Weep not for me though I am gone
Into the gentle night
Grieve if you will, but not for long
Upon my soul’s sweet flight.
I am at peace, my soul is at rest
There is no need for tears.
For with your love I was so blessed.
There is no pain, I suffer not,
The fear now all is gone.
Put those things out of your thoughts,
In your memory I live on.
Remember not my fight for breath
Remember not the strife
Please do not dwell upon my death
BUT CELEBRATE MY LIFE!
