When a loved one passes away, you may experience a wide range of emotions. You may experience sadness, confusion, loneliness, anger, anxiety, and perhaps even guilt or relief. This is a time to honor family, cultural, and religious traditions. These rituals allow you to acknowledge the reality of the death and to begin the healing journey.
At the same time, you must complete a variety of tasks. You need to call family and friends. You need to arrange for the care of the body. You need to hold a funeral or memorial service. You need to alert various government agencies and businesses about the death, and settle the estate. This booklet will help you get through the hours, days, and weeks immediately following the death of a loved one.
