The grieving process is highly individual, taking a different shape/form for each of us. There are steps that characterize the grieving process, including denial/isolation, anger, bargaining, depression, and acceptance. However, each of us goes through these stages in a highly individualistic manner. Some individuals may experience all stages of grief, whereas others may not. For some individuals they may experience these stages in succession, whereas for others their experience may be more tornado like, vacillating from one stage to another and back again. We should remember to not judge how someone is working through their grief/loss and allow the process to unfold naturally for them.
