Thanks to the Internet, grief and illness no longer needs to be suffered in silence. We’ve documented many examples of ailing users who went online to ease the pain, from Shane Burcaw’s Tumblr about life with spinal muscular atrophy to Susannah Breslin’s public breast cancer announcement.

As you may be thinking about adding Pinterest to your funeral home’s social media strategy here are a few of the top Grief and Inspiration pinboards we found.
