Grief/Loss Support Group

It has come to my attention that there is a need and desire to have a group meeting for those who have lost a spouse, child, significant other, friend, etc… and would like to be able to share their feelings and have others support and give insight into how to heal and what they can do to grieve healthily. This is a peer support group, not led by a therapist or professional, just friends getting together to listen, give a hug, suggest what might have helped them, etc… We will see where this goes…No need to sign up, just come and be a good listener and a warm shoulder.
