Finding ways to say goodbye to a loved one
This is the story of a widow who had to let her husband go – but who found ways of bringing him back. It examines the emotional, social, and spiritual aspects of what it’s like to say goodbye to a loved one at the end of their life’s journey.
It’s something we will all have to do. The word ‘bereavement’ comes from the ancient German for ‘seize by violence’ – though today, we use the word to describe the period of grief and mourning we go through after someone close to us dies. It’s about adjusting to life without that person and finding a place to keep their memory alive.
