If you have lost a spouse, child, family member, or friend, it may be hard for you to feel optimistic about the future right now. You may be thinking there are not many people who understand the deep hurt you feel. That is the reason for GriefShare – a support group for people grieving the loss of someone close. This group is facilitated by people who have lost loved ones and understand what you are experiencing. They want to offer you encouragement and comfort during this difficult time in your life.
