Cress Funeral & Cremation Service is pleased to share a compassionate and timely video by Dr. Alan Wolfelt, one of North America’s leading death educators and grief counselors, offering practical suggestions for people grieving the death of a loved one during this unique holiday season.
We are living in a time of many challenges. Funeral options are limited, restrictions are keeping people apart, and we are all trying to cope with the unknowns lying ahead. Dr. Wolfelt offers a variety of insights to grieve, mourn, and still embrace hope in the coming months. A few takeaways include:
“Allow yourself to be sappy,” Dr. Wolfelt says. Having paradoxical emotionality, being happy and sad at the same time, is a great sign of mental health.
Dr. Wolfelt serves as the director of the Center for Loss and Life Transition in Fort Collins, Colorado.
