"UNDERSTANDING YOUR GRIEF"
NEW GROUP Session beginning March 2013 and running through December 2013 for individuals who have never participated in a support group at Milward Funeral Directors.

After the loss of a loved one, Milward Funeral Directors provides a monthly support group called "Understanding Your Grief." There is no cost or obligation to participate in a Milward Support Group.
We encourage you to bring personal mementos, photographs, or other items that you may like to share with the group.
We will be learning the "Ten Essential Touchstones" as described by Dr. Alan Wolfelt in his book, Understanding Your Grief. Each one-hour session will also provide an opportunity for self-expression using a journal and voluntary sharing will be encouraged. Following the meeting, refreshments will be served.
Recent support group participants had the following to say about the changes they have experienced in their personal grief journeys and the most valuable aspects of the group experience to them:
"Realizing that I was not alone and knowing others were experiencing similar feelings and knowing that my mourning was ok and could actually have a positive value in the healing process." -Carleen Ott
"We found contact with others very helpful. It's so important not to isolate yourself." -Anonymous
"I appreciate the willingness to listen to each other-the acceptance shown to all-the kindness and friendliness. This bond among the brokenhearted was unique. I wonder if succeeding groups will be as blessed by this experience as I was." -Nansara Baker
Please invite family members, friends, neighbors, co-workers and church members to join you at these meetings. We will offer support and encouragement to everyone who attends.
