An experience of bereavement
We are a grateful to a friend of Brightstone for writing about her experiences of grief in the article below. She describes a painful process of dealing with the loss of a close relative, which eventually resulted in acceptance. The message is one of hope, that it is possible to come through the difficult emotions that make up grief and move to a place of acceptance.
