Retirement Savings Plan SPD
The passing of a loved one is perhaps the most painful event in life. No one should have to grieve alone. At this time of a loss it is important to surround yourself with your personal support group who can help console and counsel you. Your personal support group includes family, friends, coworkers, neighbors, and your religious community. In some cases you may wish to seek the guidance of a professional counselor. In coming to terms with your loss, you will take some time to recollect your loved one. You can appreciate the blessings that their presence brought to your life, even if the time they could stay with you seems to have ended too soon.
"Nothing is so strong as gentleness and
nothing is so gentle as real strength"
--Ralph W. Sockman
With the support of your friends and family you will be able to gather the strength to complete the necessary details that must be faced by the survivors. There is much to do; the linked check list gives you a starting point from which to work. It is advisable that the tasks be divided up, if possible, between loved ones. In this manner, the necessary steps can be completed, without any one person bearing the entire burden. It is natural and normal that the pain and grief of the survivors will take time to heal. Make full use of your personal support network.
