Paths to Peace Grief Support Group

“Grieving is as natural as crying when you are hurt, sleeping when you are tired, or eating when you are hungry… It is nature’s way of healing a broken heart.”
~Doug Manning

Please consider joining us

The death of someone we love changes our lives forever. And the movement from the “before” to the “after” is almost always a long, painful journey. Although grief cannot be structured into a set pattern, it is a natural process that is built within us to help us deal with our losses. Understanding the process and allowing it to happen are two important keys for navigating this path.
Please consider joining us…Paths to Peace Grief Support Group offers a caring environment and helpful strategies for taking a few more steps toward healing our broken hearts. This support group is facilitated by Kathleen Helgeson, MA CFLE, in partnership with the O’Connell Family Funeral Homes.
