After the loss of a loved one, we experience a wide assortment of emotions and feelings. The ever-changing emotions we experience with grief can catch us off guard, causing us to act out of character, or contrarily to our usual personality and manner. Grief changes with time and circumstances. “Grief never ends… But it changes. It’s a passage, not a place to stay. Grief is not a sign of weakness, nor a lack of faith… It is the price of love.”- Author Unknown
We all need a support system to help us as we move through our grief journey. Cherry Gulch offers a grief and loss support group for our boys. A support group can become a valuable resource to assist in education, companionship and coping. In the support group, the boys will find new companions also living life after loss, and the support of a therapist who specializes in Grief/Loss. The grief support group offers camaraderie and understanding from others who have experienced a loss, and are experiencing the similar challenges that living with grief brings.
