Etiquette At The Funeral Service and Beyond
How To Treat Someone After Someone They Love Dies
Has someone you know recently lost someone they love? Have you ever felt awkward consoling a friend who'd lost their husband or life partner? Fearing you might say the wrong thing, you ended up not saying anything at all?
Death is a touchy subject and as a psychic medium, I find myself frequently in the position of maiden for the afterlife, not only helping the spirits, but also consoling the people who've lost them.
Afterlife support is a tough job, even for the professionals who do it, so no wonder so many are afraid they won't get it right.
Funeral home staff members, directors and those who help with the body's physical transition also have a tough job, and they too, frequently find themselves in the difficult job of consolation.
Frequently, their assistance and the actions of those who offer it goes unnoticed, under appreciated and unrecognized, though they are often the very people who spend the most time with the spirit after their death and in the helping of the family in their immediate hours of need.
Now both the medium and the funeral worker want to provide a valuable service to the afterlife community, and together we have some tips to share with you.
