Grieving is a zig, zag, slip, sliding journey.

Some days it can be hard to eat, to breathe, sleep, brush your hair, get out of bed, get dressed, answer your phone, have a shower or, go to work.

Finding a reason, or the energy, to do things you once regarded as so ordinary you did them without thinking, is tough. Especially when you feel alone. 

Is this you? 

Online counseling can offer the support you need.

Despite what well-meaning friends or family might tell you there are no "right" ways to grieve. And neither are there "right" stages which everyone must pass through in a "right" sequence.

When you meet with an online grief counselor you will be understood, and carefully guided towards finding a way forward.

  • Just fill out the online questionnaire and within minutes you will be assigned the professional grief counselor most suitable for your needs. You don't even have to use your own name if you don't want to.
  • You'll pay an affordable fee set according to the length of the subscription plan you choose.
  • Access your counselor whenever you want via chat, messaging, video or phone.

Thank you

This was the perfect eulogy I was looking for. I was asked (to step in) to read a eulogy for a friend/co-worker on a short notice and I have no idea what to say or where to start. The person that wrote the original eulogy could not go through with it and I was not comfortable to read their eulogy so I had to write my own. This was the perfect example of eulogy of some one that is not related. Thank you for sharing and so sorry for your loss.


Thanks for sharing such a brief but mighty tribute of a great one. It has indeed sharpened my opinion and view about life. Thanks once again.

Miss you

Truly sorry to hear about Jerry's passing. Him and I came to UNCC together from New Jersey. Jerry was a great team mate and he will be missed deeply by the rest of them.
