Please join us for a morning of shared stories about the people we love who have died. We will feel free to laugh together and cry together as we listen, learn, and reflect. Though grief takes all kinds of twists and turns, leaving us feeling fine one day and disoriented and heavy another day, for most of us, a chance to share and be with other grievers gives some comfort and joy. Come and receive the benefit of being with others on the same journey.

You begin to cry and writhe and yell and then to keep on crying; and finally, grief ends up giving you the two best gifts:  softness and illumination.” 

— Anne Lamott, “Small Victories: Spotting Improbable Moments of Grace”
