    Unending Love
    The healing journey after the loss of a child

    The loss of a child, grandchild, or sibling is unlike any other. We’ll talk about the real struggles of the journey with all of the ‘successes and set backs’. Our discussion topics will vary from meeting to meeting. While we are a sharing group, there’s never any pressure or expectation for anyone to talk. Each person, including couples, will grieve and heal differently because of their own life experiences along with the nature of their relationship with their loved one. While this is an individualized journey, we can take the journey together.

    Healing Through the Holidays Luncheon
    Sunday, December 1 @ 12:30 PM

    The holidays are a difficult time of the year when dealing with the loss of a loved one. Gather with your family as well as others and celebrate the life and memory of your loved one. Share who your loved one was - even though our loved ones are not here physically, we can still introduce them to others and include them in the holiday season!

    We want this to be a time of getting to know your loved one in an uplifting, supportive surrounding. Healing tears will surely be shed, but our goal is to lift you up emotionally and have you leave feeling filled with joy and blessed that this person was in your life.
