Grief and Loss — Finding Comfort:
Through her life Maureen experienced loss. It wasn't until she became a hospice volunteer that she realized she was able to sit with people as they grieved. On February 7, 2016, she will talk with us about how to comfort ourselves as we experience grief and loss and how to help others. While she will discuss briefly the popular theories of grieving most of the discussion will be on practical suggestions on how to be present for those who are grieving and what to say and what not to say.
