The holidays are generally perceived as “the most wonderful time of the year.” However, for those who are facing grief after the death of a loved one, the holidays may instead be a time filled with pain and sadness.
Even those for whom grief is not as fresh, the holidays may serve as an annual reminder of the loss—not only of that person, but of tradition and celebration.
If you are struggling to figure out how to celebrate this holiday season without a loved one or if you are supporting someone who is struggling join us for a free seminar on Grief During the Holidays. The free seminar will take place from 12:00 pm to 12:50 pm on Wednesday, November 29th at the Long Branch Area YMCA on 1304 S Missouri St. in Macon.
For more information or questions, please call 660-627-9711.
