Knowing what to expect can certainly help you take the first steps towards healing when you experience the loss of a loved one. It’s common to feel an array of emotions: guilt, anger, confusion, hurt, and depression. However, it’s important to realize the situation and openly discuss the difficulties of death with your loved one.
Here are some things to make the transition easier:
- Spend as much time as possible together.

- Make apologies, if you have any.
- Express your love and appreciation, give thanks for the time you’ve had together.
- Reminisce on memorable moments you have shared.
