For me and my family the last several years have been rough ones with several loses in our extended
family, several from cancer, one from a heroin overdose, and one from natural causes. This page is my attempt to
help others in any way that I possibly can, though I must confess that I am lousy at dealing with some of
these aspects of grieving myself. Here are a few thoughts I would like to offer, though that may seem like cold
comfort to the bereaved:
1. The life that has just ended is a life worth celebrating and fondly remembering.
2. The person who has passed on has entered into the loving hands of our Heavenly Father and is in the finest Hands there
3. It is perfectly all right for men as well as women to shed tears over the passing of loved ones.
4. When holding a Feast also known as a Wake, it is an excellent time to celebrate a life that has just passed. Remember
the good times and the love that that person had to give.
5.Emphasise the humorous sides to that life that just ended. A good, hearty laugh can help with the healing process.
While I don't claim to have all the answers, anyone who has any ideas to add to this page is requested to
e-mail me at: rangerjim@bluefrog..com
. and I will be happy to look them over and add them to this page. This page has one purpose and
one purpose only; to provide aid and comfort to the bereaved as well as families of the terminally
ill and help them make the final days as pleasant and enjoyable as possible.
