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.

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.
