Bereavement Group Offers Validation and Support to members of our community following loss

In our deepest grief, those who have loved and know loss, find the darkest and hardest days of our journey as humans.

Grief is a difficult emotion to completely explain to those who have not experienced it, but it is without a doubt an emotion based in love. Having had the humbling experience of working with people in all stages of grief, it is easy to marvel at the power of loss to bring all walks of life together.

Loss is universal, knows no socio-economic bounds, race or occupation. It is something that we all will face if we are willing to love.

A quote that often circulates in grief support groups is by Jamie Anderson: “Grief, I’ve learned, is really just love. It’s all the love you want to give, but cannot. All that unspent love gathers up in the corners of your eyes, the lump in your throat, and in that hollow part of your chest. Grief is just love with no place to go.”

Over the past year, Marcus Daly Hospice has been offering a structured bereavement course of grief support that has proven beneficial to those in our community that are struggling with the loss of a loved one. Over the year those who have participated have had the opportunity to bear witness to countless stories of love, loss and grief during this time.
