Grieving at one's own pace

Kelly Hanson

At the Agnesian HealthCare Bereavement Center, one service we offer is one-on-one support for those who have experienced the death of a loved one. We offer free support to both children and adults during the grieving process following the death of a significant person in their life. While the world sometimes attaches stigma to getting support, we want you to know it's okay to challenge that and know how courageous you are for stepping forward to receive the support you may need.  

One key thing to remember is everyone reacts to the death of a loved one differently. There is no right or wrong way to grieve, grieving is individualized. It is our goal to provide a safe place where children and adults alike can move through the grieving process openly, sharing their story with other bereaved in our various support groups, and/or privately, with one of our bereavement team members.

If you have been thinking about reaching out, I encourage you to do so. No one should have to grieve alone. Support is here and we hope you find that our services meet your needs. If you would like more information regarding our services, please contact us at (920) 907-3940. We are available to walk with you during your grief journey. Come as you are. It's okay.

"It's okay.

It's okay to miss them.  

It's okay to say their name.

It's okay to cry.

It's okay to laugh.

It's okay to breathe deeply.

It's okay to smile when you think of them.

It's okay to function.

It's okay to have days where you can't function.

It's okay to be angry.

It's okay to be thankful.

It's okay to love again.

It's okay to remember.

It's okay to hope.

It's okay to be honest.

It's okay to trust again.

It's okay.

It's okay.

It's okay."
