Initially, I felt as many do in seeking help, fear of being vulnerable or weak, fear of being judged. You helped me understand the many paths of grief. Thank you.
A Bereaved Daughter

The death of a loved one is the most profound of all sorrows.

Grief is a natural and normal response to loss. Though there are common experiences people share as they grieve, each of us has a unique experience of grief as influenced by our personalities, life experiences, coping styles, and the meaning of the loss to us. Loss impacts our minds, bodies, and hearts. By tending to your grief, a sense of increased comfort and slow healing comes with time. Caring and supportive people can make a significant difference along this path. The Yolo Hospice Bereavement Services staff is available to be a source of caring support to you.

There is a sacredness in tears. They are not the mark of weakness, but of power. They speak more eloquently than ten thousand tongues. They are messengers of overwhelming grief and unspeakable love.
