Bereavement support offered in Comox

Meetings at the Comox Valley Presbyterian Church

Marion Carmichael, bereavement group facilitator and graduate of the Comox Valley Hospice Society bereavement support volunteer training program, hosts regular bereavement support gatherings in the room of the Comox Valley Presbyterian Church.

The first meeting is Thursday, March 3, from noon to 2 p.m.

This is not a religious meeting, but simply an opportunity for those who wish to listen, discuss and share with others who have lost someone close to them.

It’s never too late to say goodbye, whether it be a day or a year. Unfortunately, some people encourage others and their families not to hold a ceremony of remembrance. This deprives those that are left behind of the opportunity to say goodbye to the loved one.

This is not an expensive thing to do; sandwiches and tea do just fine.

The people, whether they be friends or relatives, usually come together to reminisce the one lost, and everyone gets their opportunity to say their goodbye and enjoy memories.

For more details on the gatherings, call Carmichael at 250-339-5432.
