 Support Groups

Love is Eternal Widows/Widowers  – Support Group

Samantha Decker Stump, M.S., Family Life Education, Certified Grief Recovery SpecialistSammi StumpAlternate MONDAY’S  (February 4, February 16th 2019) from 1:00 – 3:00 PM in the Myrtle Fillmore Room

The isolation that so often is the aftermath of a personal loss can be greatly lessened by reaching out and sharing with others who have had similar experiences and understand you. Some of the emotions you may be experiencing could be: feeling out of the moment and inability to concentrate, feeling overwhelmed, deep alone-ness, desire to be isolated and hiding your pain from others, thinking one will never find love again. All of these systems are part of a normal grieving process and gradually lessen when the time is right for you. There is no right time to be over grief, it is a very individual process. Grief does not move in neat predictable stages but ebbs and flows back and forth; revisiting earlier challenges, and then having courage to reach out again. If you or someone you love is in grief reach out to them and let them know they are not alone and they are welcome at the Widow/Widower support group. ________________________________________________________________________________________________
