COVID-19 and Grieving

In the months since the COVID-19 pandemic has been with us… we all have been directly or indirectly touched by the deaths caused by the disease.  It has taken loved ones and friends, coworkers and neighbors.  It has also taken away our ability to mourn in traditional ways.  We’re unable to share final words with those who’s last moments are in a hospital.  Funerals are reduced to no more than ten people. This is another part of the new normal spawned by the coronavirus.  We discuss the difficult grieving process and finding closure.
