A Letter To You!

Dear Client,

I offer my condolences and prayers to you on your loss. This untimely event in your life can't be suspended, postponed or deleted. 

The many emotions of grief can make and have you feeling like you are on a roller coaster ride or running through a maze screaming for HELP!! I just want you to know that you are not alone. Just unbuckle your seat belt. Grief is natural, normal and will happen to us all. However, if it is not recognized, acknowledged and dealt with it can cause negative effects in your life.

Maneuvering through the predictable and unpredictable pain of grief is uniquely different for us all.

Bee by Your Side Bereavement and Concierge Service is here to service you in your time of loss. As a Bereavement Concierge Service we assist and relive you of the weight during this difficult time.

We are not a funeral home or funeral service but serve as a liaison/between the family, funeral home, vendors and cemetery if applicable. We also offer Grief Coaching classes.

Our mission is to help you breathe easier, bring comfort, and help you navigate through the maze of loss bringing you comfort in knowing that your affairs are being handled properly. 

Remember that this is your own personal walk, so be patient and kind to yourself and allow yourself to grieve.
