A Year in Grief

The first year following a death can be full of questions and worries, sorrow and memories. As you search for comforting words and healthy ways to cope with your loss, we offer you A Year in Grief. This series of 11 brief videos by Doug Manning will discuss some of the common and normal issues that may come up over the course of your first year.  They are presented sequentially to walk with you on this path of grief. Watch them in order, watch the ones that speak to where you are, watch all of them together—you decide what is best for you. It is the hope of Doug and Hansen-Spear Funeral Home that these moments spent together will provide some insights, answers and guidance as you learn to live with this loss.
