Grief Support
Grief is something most of us experience at some point in our life. Many people think of grief as being triggered by the loss of a loved one. However, some people will grieve after a major emotional life change. In America, with our fast paced lives, grieving can be especially challenging. Everyone has something that needs attention like work, family, and other responsibilities. All these things take up our time and leave little time to take care of ourselves. Experts suggest we slow down. Don't try to "get over it", but try instead to build up your own resilience by acknowledging, learning, and growing from your experience of loss. Remember without deep love, deep grief would not exist!

Since 2006 when Connie Slick started the initial grief support group, she has been sending out booklets that lend comfort and support to people after a loss. These booklets were given to her after the loss of her husband in 2005 and she has found that they really speak to the heart. These booklets are a quick easy read, vs. a long book on grieving. Since 2006 almost 1000 booklets have been sent! If you or a loved one would like these booklets please email Connie.
