How to Help a Grieving FriendHow to Help a Grieving Friend
When a friend loses a loved one through death, we struggle to know what to do. Working through grief involves accepting the loss, experiencing the pain of that loss and creating a different bond or relationship with the person you have lost. This presentation offers attendees ways to help a friend who has experienced the loss of a loved one. A light lunch or dinner will be provided along with the session.

This class is free and open to the public, but re-registration is required one week prior to each class date. To register for classes, call (800) 237-4629 and ask for the bereavement department.
