“I don’t think we would have made it without this group. We were so overwhelmed after the death that we couldn’t even think. We came here and felt like there is someone who understands us. We have made connections and feel loved,” Deb, grief support group attendee. People are encouraged to drop-in to see if their support groups are the right fit.
