Coping with the Grief of Losing a Loved One

Losing a loved one can be a very difficult and trying time for the family and friends of the loved one. Coping with the grief of losing a loved one can be a very difficult process. Often grief is not properly dealt with or expressed because it is not properly understood. This section of our website will serve to help you better understand and cope with the grieving process. You will find resources for coping with grief in Rhode Island as well as on the Internet.

For some of you, attending a funeral or wake for the first time might make you nervous and unsure about how to act. For this purpose, we have also provided a section that gives suggestions on funeral etiquette. This section will be useful to anyone who needs help from what to wear to a wake to how to write a eulogy.

The Stapleton-Barry-Holdredge Funeral Home recognizes the rich diversity of the American population. We strive to cater to the customs and needs of members of all religions and backgrounds. To this end, we have also included a section that includes information on funerals in different religions and cultures.
