Brenda and I have been attending GriefShare group sessions at a local church. The materials for one of the sessions suggested writing a grief letter. The purpose of the letter is to:
- Describe what we have experienced and how we are feeling about it.
- Let people know what they can expect from us in our current state.
- Give our friends instructions on what they can do to help during this difficult time. Let them know what is needed and when it is needed.
Inspired by this suggestion, I have crafted a grief letter on behalf of our family. You can read it here.
