Thank you Scott and so sorry for your loss. Is there a group of families/spouses etc that lost their precious loved one that meet either by phone or annually? If not, maybe we should form one and meet invdifferent states each year? A place where everyone has felt the heartache and difficult journey we experienced and are left to carry on.

Good morning @holly56 Thank you for the kind words.

I imagine there are on-site groups that gather in various locations. For instance, the hospice program we used, even though my wife chose home hospice, offers a grief and loss support group here in my small town. I also know there are various groups for grief and loss throughout the Chicago area, but am not sure about other areas. I'd guess local churches might offer something too. Plus I discovered our local funeral home and hospital also knew of support groups in our area, too.

It was the isolation I was battling, which actually brought me to search out Connect. I particularly appreciated that it was 'on call' 24/7 for me!

While Connect is worldwide and the logistics of setting up in-person groups would be outside its design, perhaps your local hospital would be interested? In the meantime, remember we are here just a few keystrokes away to share, listen, or for venting!

How are you doing today?
