FUNERALS IN THE TIME OF COVID
From the way we work to the way we socialize, COVID-19 has had a profound effect on all of us. For those who have lost a loved one during these difficult times, the results have been particularly heartbreaking. That’s because it’s not just routine activities that have changed, but how we grieve.
At least for the time being, most of us are forced to wait to celebrate the life of a loved one lost. That means grief may be delayed or deferred and that's not easy. Our traditions and customs normally lead us to paying tribute right away so that we can start to navigate the difficult road ahead.
Our latest post in the Funeralwise Forums, Goodbye for Now, looks at ways to honor a loved one now while waiting until social distancing requirements are relaxed to have a larger celebration of life. We hope the tips and advice are helpful.
For those who are currently grieving, we have resources on our website that may help. If you are feeling overwhelmed, we encourage you to reach out for help.
