“It’s only after you’ve stepped outside your comfort
zone that you begin to change, grow, and transform.”
We often hear from our families that adjusting and finding a new rhythm of life following a loved one’s death can be painful. They feel more isolated, lonely, and overcome with various emotions that seem to come in waves depending on the day. In addition, celebrating holidays and families’ birthdays can feel different, and unexpected changes can increase those negative feelings.
At Greenlawn Funeral Home, we deeply value having trusting relationships with the families we serve and others in the community. We also strive to be present before, during, and after the services of a loved one and do what we can to go the extra mile.
No matter the change, we want to help families who might be struggling to adjust or need a little extra support through community remembrance events, guidance tips on our blog, or posting important information on our social media sites.
If you feel like you’re struggling to adjust and that finding a counselor might be helpful, we would be honored to help connect you to a resource that fits your needs. No one should grieve alone, and there are ways to begin your healing journey.
