The holiday season has begun which might mean this is the first holiday after your loved one has passed. It may be the second, third or beyond as well. You will be facing some tough emotions and due to the nature of Thanksgiving and Christmas, with the focus on family, traditions, expectations and social events filled with “cheer”, the emotions can be overwhelming. You can lessen the emotional impact by being prepared and knowing what to expect.
