  1. The 7 Stages of Grief: A Guide to the Mourning Process Few things compare to the loss of a loved in terms of the grief that one feels. This is why so much research has been done covering the grieving process. One of the most famous works that has ever been published on the topic is Dr. Elisabeth Kübler-Ross’s 7 Stages of Grief. By learning about the 7 stages of grief, you can be there for your loved ones in their time of loss. Shock and disbelief: The most natural thing in the world is to be shocked with a loved one’s departure. This is especially true if the death was unexpected such as is the case with homicide and suicide. A person in this state can even experience physical symptoms such as dizziness, nausea, numbness, etc. Denial: This stage can manifest itself in several ways just as is the case with the other stages of grief. A person may outright deny that the person is gone or he/he may also deny their own feelings at the loss. Pain and guilt: After the shock and denial wear off, survivors often experience overwhelming feelings of pain and guilt. A person may feel guilt over something that they said or did to the deceased that has nothing to do with why they died. Anger and bargaining: Frustration at the loss of a loved one can often lead to anger. Survivors can sometimes lash out in anger at others around them. They may also resort to bargaining in vain with the power they felt took their loved one away. For example, someone who drinks may promise never to do so again if the loved one is returned. Depression, loneliness and reflection: People at this stage often feel more accepting over what has happened but still may be overwhelmed by feelings of loneliness and depression. Survivors often begin to reflect upon past memories of the deceased. Reconstruction and working through: As survivors reach the end of the grief process, their minds start to work again. They begin to deal with the practical aspects of life without their loved one. Acceptance and hope: The final stage of grief involves learning to accept what has happened. This does not mean that the person still does not feel sad. It means that they are ready to consider returning to a normal life and are seeking a way forward.

  2. Eventually, mourners will be able to think about the passing of a loved one without quite as much pain. They will once again anticipate good times to come in their personal lives. We can help you honor the deceased at all stages of grief with an engraved wind chime or a memorial wind chime. This way you can have a permanent expression of your respect and love for those who are no longer in your life.
