Bereavement Support Group

All Are Welcome – Bereavement Support Group

Grief is a difficult emotion to cope with, and can be very isolating. We recognize and experience the grief of loss with our visitors every day. So many visiting the cemetery feel an emptiness that can be overwhelming and difficult to share with others.  Grief is not something that can be cured; however, you may find comfort and understanding in talking with other people that are experiencing grief and loss, similar to you.

Our bereavement support group provides a safe and confidential place for those who are grieving to share their stories, experiences, show compassion to one another, and remember loved ones.

Are you unsure if you’re ready or want to talk or share your experience? We welcome those who may just want to try a bereavement support group and listen in a comforting, no pressure environment.

Please note that this is not formal counseling.

Our bereavement support group is free of charge and open to anyone struggling with the loss of a loved one.

Join us for one or more sessions for coffee and conversation.

Beginning February, the first Wednesday of the month*, 10:30-11:30am  (No January session).
