Grief Groups & Support Events
The death of a loved one, for most people, is one
of life's most serious events. Changes can be very difficult and
affect many areas of life - emotional, spiritual, social, and
day-to-day activities. For most families, the funeral is the
transition from what life was to the beginning of a new life that
includes adapting to a sense of loss and grief.
Local grief support groups can offer support and encouragement. A
few are listed below with details of their group. We encourage you
to look to a variety of resources to help you deal with your loss
and as always, to contact us if we can be of assistance.
We also want to provide online help with the
grieving process. Please visit our GRIEF
