Online Grief Support - Because when a loved one leaves us, the grief can be overwhelming.

Sometimes, the sudden "aloneness" is too much to bear. The conversations throughout the day with a spouse, the phone calls or emails with a friend or child—never again. The silence is almost unendurable. You yearn to continue the conversation. If you are coping with grief, you've come to the right place. Our online grief support site offers grief blogs, inspirational quotes, and interactive writing tools to help you manage your grief.

Welcome to AfterTalk

We created AfterTalk as a place for Comfort and Sharing for those who have experienced loss or are supporting a Loved One in Hospice Care.

We're a secure place where you can write and share with your deceased loved one, in ways both comforting and healing, in complete privacy. Writing to share what's in your heart is like being together again.

Our Private Conversations space is a sanctuary where you can write to your loved one, and save your writing for as long as you wish. You can also create a space where your invited Family and Friends can write and share together. In our AfterTalk Blog, you can find recent posts that share insight on dealing with many different forms of grief.

In our Resource Center, you'll find books, DVDs and grief counseling resources along with information related financial, insurance and estate planning.

We are non-denominational and free to all.

We are always there for you.
