Help for LGBT people facing holidays after partner’s death

The holidays can be hectic and trying even in the best of times. But facing a season dedicated to family and love after the death of a partner can be particularly hard.

“Holidays after the death of a partner can be tender and difficult,” says Linda Ellis, executive director of The Health Initiative. “The empty chair at the table can leave a glaring hole amid the traditional events and gatherings of the season, and often those around us are moving too quickly to recognize the loss in the same way we do.”
