Loss is the disappearance of something cherished, often the death of a person, loss of a relationship, loss of a job or loss of health.

Grief is the entire response--mind, body and spirit--to the loss.

Bereavement is the term often used when the loss is due to the death of a loved one.

Although a disorienting, disturbing and distressing process, grief is a normal response, one that most people can cope with given enough time.
