Working at a Funeral Home in various capacities brings me into contact with so many interesting situations about how families are coping with GRIEF. The very heart of my work is helping our families deal with Grief. I am constantly intrigued by how Grief is handled by individuals and families, and what those examples have to teach me about living. And of course, many of those instances also include lessons on Ageing.
