Enid News and Eagle

ENID, Okla. — One of the hardest things we have to do in life is grieve the death of a loved one.

Hospice Circle of Love’s bereavement team recognizes the challenges of the grieving process. They have scheduled a community grief group for those in need. Meetings will take place the first four Tuesdays in October: Oct. 1, 8, 15 and 22 at 5 p.m. at the Hospice Circle of Love office, 314 S. 3rd. Sessions will last about an hour. Participants are encouraged to attend all four sessions.

The grief group is free and open to anyone 18 and over who is dealing with the death of a loved one. Each of the sessions will focus on different aspects of the grieving process, such as common responses to grief, identity changes and on-going support.

“The group setting allows participants to connect with others who are dealing with the same struggles,” said Circle of Love Bereavement coordinator Kevin Strope.

Those who would like to sign up for the grief group can call Strope at 234-2273.

Hospice Circle of Love is a not-for-profit organization that helps terminally ill patients and their families. Circle of Love is celebrating 30 years this year.
