A Word About Copyrightę / Linking to This Site


The pages at The Grieving Heart® are from my original nonfiction work - with the exceptions of outside links and copyright free graphics. When I have used the work of another, as with poems and quotes, I have given credit to the author or artist and included footnotes, sources, references and bibliographies throughout the site.

You may print the information and writing activities here for your own use, but please do not post the text from my web site on the Internet without my permission. If you share the info with anyone in any other form, (and I hope you do), I ask that you give proper citation by letting others know in writing where you found it and who created it.

Specific pages can be linked or referenced by using the full address for that page. To find the page you want, click on it from the navigation bar or site map. The address will appear in your browser window. For example, if you wish to link to only Kindred Spirits, the correct address is:

Why can’t I find a page or link that used to be here?

Over the last eleven years, The Grieving Heart® meandered into many topics and lost its purpose. I have deleted 40 pages to bring it back to the original focus of grief and helping grievers.

Web addresses come and go and I cannot guarantee the accuracy, safety or longevity of third-party (external) sites. Adding links by request, or finding and fixing broken links are massive time consumers, so I have deleted many outside sources and will limit additions in the future. The external links that remain are checked on a regular basis and related to grief, helping grievers and pet loss. 

I will continue to honor and remember veterans and fallen soldiers because it is the least I can do for those who have given so much.

I hope that my renewed attention to grief information will make The Grieving Heart® a better experience and comfort for you. Thank you for visiting. CJ

A Word About E-mail: One way to decrease SPAM caused by Internet bots is to deactivate the live address link. You can still contact me by typing this address into your own e-mail program using @, a period, and no spaces, the standard e-mail format. Thank you.

Note to Visitors:
I read and respond to grief email at the end of each month when I update this site. If you need a more timely response, please visit a well moderated grief healing discussion group. It is free to use and requires registration to participate. I am not part of this group, but certified grief counselors are there to help, support and comfort grievers and those who love them. Because the counselors lost funding for the site, they are grateful for voluntary donations.

How complicated and individual mending is,
the time required for healing
cannot be measured against any fixed calendar
