Allow feelings: A lot of people try to suppress feelings of loss, but this does not help process grief. Accept help and support from family and community. A memorial service sharing stories of the deceased can help. Let yourself weep, if it comes. Accept hugs; give hugs. Listen to music. Listen to others who are missing the same person. Take walks, get good rest. Feed self well. Massage can help nurture.
