The Compassionate Friends is a support group for anyone who has suffered the loss of a child.
We come together to share our experience and offer support.
Some of our children were quite young when they died, others were adults.
We understand the grief that accompanies the loss of any child at any age.
We are not affiliated with any religion, we do not judge anyone?s circumstances, and we respect the confidences that are shared. Both parents and grandparents attend, some for a long while and some for just a brief time. We experience sad-
ness and tears as we talk about the children we have lost, but we also celebrate and laugh as we remember the special times with them. Some attend quite soon after the death of a child. Others may wait years to participate in The Compassionate Friends.
We are a peer led group, and at some of our meetings we host guest speakers and have special programs. Visit any time you are ready.
