RESOURCES & FAQ

It can be interesting to read publications on what can be done before or at time of death. However, it is advisable to always discuss the relevant information with a Professional Funeral Director (commonly referred as a thanatologue in Quebec) to validate what are the appropriate steps in a given situation. To give advice at such a stressful time requires an understanding of the situation, proper knowledge, and training that only few people have.


You can consult the guide ‘What to do in the event of death?‘ published by the government of Québec.  It touches on several topics surrounding the handling of tasks that need to be taken care of.  However, as this document is very general, not all the information will pertain to you and certain tasks will be taken care of by us.

GRIEF AND MOURNING SUPPORT

 


“Grief, a suffering to be understood”. Grieving is the normal experience when losing a loved one, a void that accompanies the departure of someone close to your heart.  It is a process that may be long, can extend from over several months to even some years.  Greater the affection for the person,  more the grieving may be intense.  It is important to understand that each individual responds in this own way to such an ordeal and the intensity of emotions does not necessarily equal the depth of the pain.

It is especially IMPORTANT to express one’s grief in various forms – to cry is one, make farewell rituals to mark the departure, is another.  The more one trys to evade or trivialize the death of a loved one, greater the damage in the future (depression, alcoholism, drug abuse, suicide etc.).
