Are they still with me?

Acceptance – accepting that our loved one is physically gone and recognizing that this new reality is the permanent reality – is immensely difficult. While they may not be physically with us, they will always be with us in spirit.

Maintain an ongoing connection with your loved one – save them a chair, eat their favourite meal, continue a project they were working on.
