Grief - Living With Loss
Saturday, September 22, 10:00 a.m. - 12:00 p.m.

Grief is difficult to describe. It is experienced whenever a person has a significant loss. It carries a host of emotions. We may be scared or angry or depressed. When someone is grieving and reaches out to be better equipped to understand its impact, the journey becomes more manageable and the person can and will be better equipped to cope, function, and embrace the "new" way of life that grief brings. This program is offered by Rev. Dr. Debra May Cerra. Registration requested.
