This can be extremely daunting for anyone – especially if you have little or no family and especially you are old – something that very few people even consider will ever happen to them – but it can happen to any of us. Watch this short section of this video and I hope it blesses you and gives you the strength to carry on after bereavement.

Lonely – get a dog – no it’s not a silly idea!

One amazing piece of advice on how to cope with bereavement, that may sound a little daft – is to get yourself a pet – especially a dog? Why? Because one thing losing a loved one results in is depression – and there is no greater enemy of depression than having to get out and do something – ie walk the dog. Not only that – you will undoubtedly end up speaking to people as everyone loves animals. Best piece of advice I’ve heard for those suffering loneliness either through death of a loved on or other reasons.
