Cun­ning­ham says each per­son’s grief is unique but there are some com­mon feel­ings and stages that may in­clude a sense of shock or de­nial.

“ You may think you are han­dling things OK but you are out of step. You have re­ceived such a jolt to your life that it has knocked you off course.”

Feel­ings of anger and de­pres­sion can fol­low be­fore a be­reaved per­son reaches ac­cep­tance.

“ But that ac­cep­tance takes time, it takes ef­fort on be­half of the in­di­vid­ual that is griev­ing and it also takes the sup­port of oth­ers.”

Be­reaved Fam­i­lies of Cape Bre­ton gives peo­ple a chance to ex­press their grief and come to terms with a fu­ture without the loved one, he says.
