Ele’s Place is a healing center for grieving children & teens with facilities in Lansing, Ann Arbor and Grand Rapids. Executive Director Gerilyn May provides some helpful hints on how to cope with grief during the holidays:
Light a candle to remember the person
During family gatherings, talk about memories of the person who died
Know that it’s okay to have fun
Make an ornament or decoration for the person who died–or one that reminds you of that person.
