Jill Johnson-Young is a licensed clinical social worker in California with decades of experience on the topic of death and dying. Jill writes, "Death really is not scary to me, or a subject I avoid. I’ve raised my kids to see death as a part of life. Now that I’m married to a funeral director it really is part of our daily life. But that does not mean we can’t laugh, we can’t feel sunshine on happy days, or that life is negative. That’s not who I am. That’s not who I want anyone else to be."
Jill's website titled "Grief Talker" provides a wealth of information and tools to use as you process a loss.
