Life is good and should be full of joy. But sometimes we need help to find our way back there, when personal tragedy and grief strike.

I believe that if we talk about and share our experiences of death and grief, this will help us to get back to a full and happy life.

We've written the following articles to feel like you're sitting down and having a conversation with a friend over a cup of tea.

We hope you find them comforting and practical.

A cup - for tea, or any other cuppa, to offer solace and comfort when someone has died. A vessel, that can be filled and renewed. One with a break and a chip near the handle. We are broken, imperfect, but we can still serve our purpose.
