Our AFTER Story
Our family suffered the sudden death of my brother, Daniel, in 2014. We were left struck numb and deep with grief. All I felt was utter pain and overwhelming loneliness and depression. It was the darkest path I’ve ever been down.
And if that wasn’t hard enough, it seemed for the first time in my life, I was met with true silence by those around me because like most people, we either don’t know exactly what to say or are afraid to say something wrong, so we say nothing.
It’s likely that each of us has been on one side or the other of grief, or both. It’s time we take the numbness out of death and start talking again.
I created The After Company grief candle line as an answer to the universal frantic question our loved ones asked—"How can I help?”
