Mourning and Grief
Every person experiences grief differently. There is no expiration date for the grieving process, and even the well-regarded Five Stages of Grief model makes no claim to how long the journey will be. Our Titan Casket team is composed of caring, non-commissioned experts who understand the challenges you are facing. Our mission is to provide you with informative articles and resource links to assist with the internal difficulties stemming from the grief process and the external rituals associated with mourning.

1. The Titan Casket Mourning and Grief Information Hub
No matter which type of grief you are experiencing, from anticipatory to disenfranchised, the waves of emotions can be intense and require patience, as well as the help of a strong, supportive network. Titan Casket’s mourning and grief articles are designed to help you take the first steps toward healing by offering information that can help you assess where you are in the grieving process and how to help those around you who are dealing with loss. While many of the articles are specific to death and dying, others include examples of how sudden disruptions in a job or a relationship may also plunge someone into one of the stages of grief.
