They are so helpful.....

Our local meetings are the 3rd Monday of each month... Sometimes I feel like going, sometimes I don't.
They hold a candle lighting in December in remembrance of our children. I drove 2 hours this year to attend one in Victoria; there was probably 60 people there. I didn't go last year because I wasn't ready.

But now I need something to be able to keep honouring Gracie.

I don't have a local group. I am thinking about looking into Grief Share and maybe the local hospital/hospice for a group. I've been in chat the last three nights and I think I would really benefit from a group.

I haven't yet had a chance to check out the chats yet. I found Compassionate Friends through Gracie's pediatrician and went to my first meeting about 3 months after she died.

I don't know anything about Grief Share, but I am going to see what it is. I have gone to hospice as they have counselling there

I'm loving the chats. They are very active and can sometimes be hard to follow, but if you stick with it, you'll get the hang of it.
