Our caring team at Fitzgerald’s Funerals fully appreciate that there is no easy way around grief. It is a natural response to the loss of someone special or something we value.
Grief is not well understood in our society and some people try to deny it, postpone it or avoid it. However, when someone close to you has fallen asleep, there will be adjustments, both big and small, which must be made in your life. These adjustments can bring uncertainty, frustration, fear, sadness and change as each new day comes along. You will change… your routine will change… and all this is called ‘grief’.
There is no set pattern to follow when you are grieving. Even members of the one family who are mourning the loss of the same person will show their grief in different ways. Why does this happen? Because there are special factors which affect the grief of individuals differently.
Grieving is healthy and natural. It is a time we all must experience each in our own way. Avoid using words like “Be brave” and “You need to be strong”.
It could cause one to bottle up their feelings which is senseless.
You will find that as you grieve, the hurt you have will lessen as you remember the happy times you’ve shared.
A booklet on understanding and coping with grief is available freely from our office.
Fitzgerald’s Funerals has a clear focus on providing an affordable and dignified alternative in Funeral Care. Your time of loss and your hour of need is our priority, and as such, we ensure each funeral is individual and our assurance is utmost attention to detail and planning.
Our commitment to you is always to provide personal and professional care
