Welcome to our online community.
We’re sorry to hear about the recent loss of your close friend, Eileen. Thank you for sharing with us what this friendship has meant to you and the ways in which you are finding to honour her. Yes, it’s fine to share a photo of Eileen with the community. Sharing photos can be a lovely way of remembering those who have been an important part of our lives. You may also want to take a look at the Marie Curie Memory Cloud, which is an online space to reflect on a loved one’s life and share special memories with friends and family - www.mariecurie.org.uk/memory-cloud
Unfortunately, at the moment our telephone bereavement service is only available to those who are based in the U.K. However, as well as sharing some of your favourite memories of Eileen on here you would be welcome to chat with one of the team about how you are feeling through our webchat service on our website - www.mariecurie.org.uk/help/support/marie-curie-support-line/using-online-chat . If the time difference between the UK and New Zealand makes this practical for you?
Take care and stay safe,
Clare – Marie Curie Support Line Team
