Gentle and sensitive at the most difficult of times. Unless one has experienced loss, no-one can imagine the pain of coming to terms with the death of a loved one.
Time helps – but going through possessions is often part of the grieving process. I understand how traumatic this can be, there are memories in every room. I will spend as much time with you, as you need, share in your memories and support you in making the sensitive decisions as to what to keep and what to let go.
And, once you’ve chosen, I will make sure the remaining mementos are properly stored to keep them safe and accessible.
