 The death of someone we love is difficult in itself.  The expectation of the holiday season compounds that difficulty.  Come and be   part of a practical discussion surrounding the topic of grief and the holidays.  Questions addressed:  What is grief?  How will I get through these days without the one I miss so deeply?  How do I support those who have lost a loved one through the holidays?
