Grief Support

After the unexpected death of his wife, Irish author C.S. Lewis wrote in A Grief Observed, "No one ever told me that grief felt so like fear. The death of a beloved is an amputation."

While the experience of grief can be very isolating, we would like to help you take steps to counter the feelings of loneliness and disconnection. A great way to deal with grief is remembering memories you experienced with your loved one. Search through our listing of Staten Island obituaries, and share your stories and memories of the deceased so we can heal as a community. 

While the articles in our grief library can make a difference in your day-to-day life; should you need additional support, please don't hesitate to call us at 718-351-5858. We will do our best to ease your bereavement and, if requested, provide a referral to a local grief counselor or therapist.
