When we lose a loved one caused by illness, an accidental traumatic event or even natural causes, we can expect that we are going to go through some kind of a grief process.  The one whom we have loved so dearly is no longer with us, so we need to mourn that loss if we are ever going to move forward with our lives.  Our grief and mourning has no time line or limit.  It never moves forward logically or step-by-step, and we may feel its grip over and over again.

Everyone experiences grief when a loss occurs.  There is no way around it or over it or under it.  We must work through it so healing can take place.  This is hard work.  A support group is one of the ways to help one move through the grief process.

Faith and Family Hospice of Marlborough, Ma. is offering a bereavement support group at the Northborough Senior Center on Bearfoot Road. We will meet each Thursday from 12:45-2:15 p.m January 2nd to February 6th. Rev. Sharron Lamothe, one of the chaplains with Faith and Family Hospice, will be the facilitator along with assistance from colleagues from Faith and Family.

No matter how dark and frightening the winters of struggle have been after the death of a loved one, we can be assured that spring will always come birthing new life. It is our hope that if you are experiencing the loss of a loved one, you will consider attending the bereavement support group being offered in November. Then maybe you can begin to feel asense of peace, solace and healing in such a difficult time in your life.
