It hurts to lose someone. Find help at GriefShare- a  Christ centered, caring group of people who will support you through one of life's most difficult experiences.  You don’t have to go through the grieving process alone.

After the funeral, when the cards and flowers have stopped coming, most of the people around you return to their normal lives.  But your grief continues and you feel alone.

Often, friends and family want to help you, but don't know how.  That's the reason for GriefShare.  Our group is led by people who have experienced grief and have successfully rebuilt their lives.  We understand how you feel because we've been in the same place.  We will walk with you on the long path through grief toward healing and hope for the future.
