Grief Support

Khadija Samad, Manager, 
Firdous Funeral Chapel 
Irvington, NJ

I bring both personal and professional experience with death and grieving to every counselling situation, which includes the creation of this set of grief counselling resources. I know them to be the best available online today. Whether your loss has been sudden or expected, I'll help you learn to cope with the depth of emotions and experiences that are part of healthy grieving.

In addition to the bereavement services for the families we serve,  we have provided some helpful grief support links below: 


Center for Loss & Transition 

A leading provider of information and inspiration in the areas of illness and dying, loss and grief, healthy caregiving, life transition, and spirituality. 

Crisis, Grief and Healing, the first interactive grief website on the internet, offers discussion boards, articles, book suggestions, and advice for men and women working through every aspect of grief. The site’s founder, Tom Golden LCSW, has provided book excerpts and contact information to help those healing from loss.


With nearly 50 internet support groups plus a wide range of online resources, GriefNet provides support for those dealing with all types of loss. Their companion site,, helps children and their parents deal with grief and loss in an appropriate and safe environment.
