 FIVE STAGES OF GRIEF

rief is universal. It is a natural response to loss or the death of a loved one, and everyone grieves differently. A variety of emotions are felt, from sadness to loneliness, and they might be experienced for different reasons and have unique phases. In 1969, Elisabeth Kübler-Ross created a “grief” model that postulates there are five stages of grieving that a person goes through: denial, anger, bargaining, depression, and acceptance. It is important to remember that these stages are not linear, and a person may not experience them all, with some people spending different lengths of time through each stage. Individuals often move between stages before achieving a more peaceful acceptance of loss and death.

When a loved one dies, grieving family members and friends often are confronted with dozens of decisions about the funeral -- all of which must be made quickly and often under great emotional duress. We value our reputation for providing the highest quality of professional services with the personal attention and understanding needed to help you and your family through a difficult time. We accommodate all families, treating each one as if they were our own. To learn more, please call 609-737-2900. We are located at 21 North Main St. Continuous Family Service Since 1881.
