Dealing with the death of a loved one can be a long, painful, and lonely process. Many people are forced to ignore their own grief and be brave for the more vulnerable members of their family. This can just add to the stress and prolong the healing process.

At Charles J. O’Shea Funeral Home, we encourage grieving individuals to seek out online support websites and communities. Sometimes talking to and getting advice from unbiased strangers who have been in the same situation can help you and offer comfort. Here’s a list of some of the best online sources we could find:

1. Open to Hope

This organization provides articles, books, and other resources to help cope with grief. They also provide a thriving online community always willing to offer support, welcome new members, and help people deal with all kinds of grief
