10 Motivational Quotes for Those Who Have Lost a Loved One
One of the more emotional parts of my job as an estate planning and probate attorney is sitting with someone who has lost a loved one. Sure, I have plenty of experience in helping them navigate the legal process — especially if there are any loose ends to tie up. And I want them to know they can absolutely place that responsibility on me. But like them, I, too, have grieved unimaginable loss. And my heart aches for anyone dealing with such tragedy.
When you have lost someone important in your life, whether it be a spouse, parent, sibling, grandparent, or family friend, it’s OK to feel how you feel. It’s also OK to express your feelings, fears, and insecurities with your estate planning attorney. We genuinely care about what happens next and will use our expertise and compassion to make that process easier.
Losing a loved one is never easy. But hopefully, this collection of meaningful quotes can offer some comfort.
