What to Do When Someone Dies
This British booklet has some advice that is very specific to Great Britain, but some that is universal: The death of a loved one presents many challenges; and there are many decisions and arrangements you will have to make, at such a difficult time. You may feel numb, or find it difficult to believe what has happened. You may feel relief that the person is no longer suffering. You may feel sad, angry or guilty. You may also feel panicked by what lies ahead. It’s important, especially in the first few days following a death that you allow: time to take in what has happened time to talk about the person who has died time to feel the pain and loneliness time for yourself.
