The death of a child can be the most devastating loss parents can suffer.  Many wonder if they will ever get over it, and whether they can  honor the child's memory and go on. Meeting with others that have experienced a similar loss can be helpful.  Grief and Beyond support group will offer a series of three sessions that will specifically focus on surviving the death of a child, of any age, including video segments, related information and support.

There is no charge or pre-registation. Call 550-3638.
