Finding out that the person you care for has died is the worst ending to what has already been a very painful time. For some, the news will be a complete shock. For others, it was expected. Whatever you’re feeling after this news, whether that be fear, anger, guilt, desperation or relief, it is unique to you and is normal.
This time in your life will be painful. Whether the person died by accident, suicide or was harmed, you may have unanswered questions. Sometimes the practical steps needed are different because they were a missing person. Grief is heart-breaking. You are not alone.
