LONDON — When someone you love passes away, processing that loss can be incredibly hard.
Through the annals of time, the physical vestiges of a person’s life — like clothing, letters, photographs and jewellery — have provided comfort to those grieving after their death. But now, social media means a digital imprint of a person’s life can also live on after a person has died.
Grief is a profoundly personal experience that comes in a myriad of forms. But social media is proving to be an outlet for grieving friends and family members who are coming to terms with the loss of someone they love.
