Online Grief Forums & Resources
The internet is a wonderful thing, isn't it? It has brought into our homes an exciting and colorful world, and made us feel connected in some way to a world-wide brotherhood. But like any new technology, it has its down sides.
There are some unscrupulous individuals plugged into the internet whose only aim is to get that dollar out of your pocket. So beware of scams and cheesy websites and make good use of only the best parts of the web.
We present below a select listing of websites that we feel are honest and sincere in their aim of helping grieving individuals.
