I remember talking to a man who recently lost a loved one and he asked, “Will the tears ever stop?” Those words stuck with me.
With COVID-19, how much harder is grief? Watching loved ones pass away on a cell phone while holding a nurse’s hand. Attending a funeral with few attendees who are spaced apart.
Even if someone does not have COVID, hospitals still may limit how many people can say their final goodbyes in person. Often leaving the remaining family members without closure they so desperately seek.
To help process this new type of grief, I reached out to a grief counselor & licensed Social Worker, Kristine Gunningham. Listen to our conversation.
