I remember when my dad passed away, I was in such a fog of grief that I just wanted someone to tell me what I should be doing. I’m a busy-body (and an enneagram 3) and prefer to be doing than sitting still. So, I was thankful when my brother told me I needed to write the obituary. Finally, something I could do. It probably goes without saying that I quickly found writing an obituary is the worst task to take on because you are forced to summarize the life of a person you loved dearly into roughly 800 characters. How in the world do you even start?
Checklists and tasks can sometimes help give us direction in a directionless time and also help us to see what we can offload to others. Here is our starter checklist for things you can be doing after losing a loved one.
But, if you don’t want to do this or if you need time to grieve, let Sunny Care Services take care of this for you. We want to help!
