Helping you through bereavement, one step at a time...


About us

I'm Lucie Storrs, creator of the Light Beyond site. This project grew out of my own experiences of grief and loss, my desire to help others and love of the Internet as a means for doing so.

It has never been simpler to reach out and make a difference in the world. I hope that in some small way we help to make your journey through grief a little easier.

That thought has kept me going over the past six months! Please do get in touch with any feedback or comments you may have.

My thanks are due to...

Lots of people have helped me make this dream a reality. I am so grateful for Peter Harrison, my wonderful family and large collection of four-legged friends for their love, as well as Judith Morgan and Marion Ryan for their support and encouragement, Karen Knowler for sheer inspiration, Phil Gosling for showing me how it's done and Nicola Cairncross for introducing me to the wonders of the web in the first place. In many ways, we live in wonderful times, although it may not always seem like it. I think it's very important to remember that.

Meet my mother...
Lucie's mother Lyn Storrs

This project is dedicated to my mother Lyn Storrs (Evelyn Avery Jones), 1941-1969. How I wish I could remember her even a little. 
I do hope she's proud of me.

My mother died so long ago now, it seems, that most people will have forgotten her. I wonder what she would have thought of modern times and this new-fangled thing called the Internet?

Anyway, I wanted to remind the world that she existed and that she mattered to lots of people. I even thought that in some way she might enjoy a little outing in the 21st century. Who knows?


Many thanks to our transatlantic team of talented writers, who are sadly all too well acquainted with grief: Nancy AdamsMargaret Kohut, Paulette Perhach, Heather Grenier, Rhonda Oneslager and, last but not least, Mary Ella Holway. I admire you all very much for your courage and for sharing your experiences so generously to help others.


I designed and built the website myself. The website graphics were created by the wonderful Joanne MacRae at Poppy Design.

"The Light Beyond has the most beautiful short movie I've come across. The thoughtful words and outstanding images offer those of us who have lost a loved one a sense not just that someone understands but also of hope and optimism for the future." M.R.

"Bereavement For Beginners is a really valuable resource for music, readings and giving a eulogy as well as dealing with the legal process. Importantly, it also encourages you to think about your own feelings." J.W.
