These are a just a few of the many web sites and groups that are helping people through this difficult time.
www.griefshare.org This group's opening page states, "Grief Share is a friendly, caring group of people who will walk alongside you through one of lifeís most difficult experiences. You donít have to go through the grieving process alone." This site also offers a daily email to encourage and help those who are grieving.
www.griefjourney.com The website says, "Because there is so little understanding of grief and loss in our 'death denying culture', people often fear they are 'losing it', or 'going crazy'. When they understand that grief is a natural, albeit difficult, experience, this fact can free the person to explore their reactions and feelings by giving them 'permission' to grieve."
www.compassionatefriends.com Their mission statement is - "to assist families toward the positive resolution of grief following the death of a child of any age and to provide information to help others be supportive." The local chapter information is:
