Grief: Go through the stages of grief (shock, denial, anger, bargaining, depression & acceptance)f & hold on to support system you have. Seek counseling for added support.

Grief and loss: Grief is a process of working through a loss so that you eventually develop a way of living without that person in your everyday life (except in your heart, of course). To accomplish this, you need community support: friends, family, possibly support group, and maybe even professional counseling/therapy. Feel your feelings; weep as it comes up for you. Take walks. Care for yourself. Accept hugs.
