Mourning is one of the most difficult, painful, and emotionally depleting experiences a person can go through.
Mourning is a normal and natural reaction to loss, and can continue for months or years. While most people emerge from this difficult period in their lives, they continue to feel the loss. Though death is usually thought of as the main cause of grief, other events such as separation from a spouse or being fired from a job can lead to similar feelings of loss.
