Bereavement Supplement 2015

Bereavement Special Issue

Bereavement_2015_coverDealing with the death of a loved one is a process that no one should have to go through alone.

The Tablet offers this bereavement supplement with practical and spiritual advice for coping with loss and grief through online support, coffeehouse discussion groups or help from friends and neighbors who bring lasagna and listening ears.

This special issue also looks at hospice care; trends in natural burials and memorial services; the growing number of women funeral directors; and how the grieving process often begins long before a loved-one dies and continues long after large-scale tragedies occur.
