About Grief 

Often in grief we don’t know what to do, what is normal or how to get through our sorrow. It is possible to not only go through grief, but to grow through grief as well. 

Getting through our pain requires work. It may involve doing things we’ve never done before. It can be very scary, but also very hopeful. 

If you have questions about your grief or your family’s grief or if you feel you need support please give Jerry a call at 715-235-2154. Jerry is also willing to speak on a related topic to any community or civic group.

We also offer a collection of books on dealing with grief that are available to our families at no charge.
