Is there a difference between grief and mourning? Will I ever get over the death of a loved one?
In this podcast we talk about grief (the process of experiencing a loss) and mourning (the coping efforts related to the loss). We also talk about how to help yourself through the process of mourning.
We have a special guest and new member to our Everyone Dies Team – Nancy Miller. Nancy is well acquainted with grief as she tells her story in our podcast. But she has grown tremendously through it and now uses her experience to help others. We are always in awe when we listen to her powerful story.
*Note parts of this recording were made just as New York was becoming a hot spot of COVID-19, so national numbers were much lower than they are currently.
Marianne and Charlie act out a section of Old Yeller , released in 1957.

Charlie puts on his best brogue accent as we hear a great joke for our humor segment – “Everything’s Funny…as long as it happens to someone else!”
This Death By Chocolate Trifle recipe looks incredible! Layers of chocolate cake, fudge sauce, pudding, whipped cream, and Oreo cookies…yum!
What’s a trifle? All Marianne and Charlie could figure is that it’s not a truffle! Get the recipe here.
