How to Help a Family in Grief


I've watched two people die this year. Two people who were absolutely alive, but who drew in their last breaths and are now no longer with us. The first was my new friend Emily, in the spring. Then one month ago today, my mum.

I'd like to walk you through our story from the initial shock of hearing the news, through the week of waiting for the end, to mum's death and its effects. Along the way I'll simply select the best and worst of the pastoring experiences that wove their way into our history.
