Experiencing the loss of someone close to us through death is an inevitable part of life but that does not make it any easier when we experience it, even if the death was expected. Adjusting to life without the person who has died takes time, usually more time than we realise but eventually most people are able to make these adjustments and look forwards. This can be even more difficult if circumstances mean we also have to make major practical changes in our lifestyle such as moving house.
