Undoubtedly, the death of someone we love changes our lives forever. The period, which preceded the death as well as that which followed it, is a long and painful journey characterised by grief and mourning. Grief is what we think and feel on the inside, after someone we love dies, while mourning is the outward expression of those thoughts and feelings. We all grieve when someone we love dies, but if we are to heal, we must also mourn.
