After a loss, a casserole delivered to a grieving family can be a comforting gesture. However, many of us want to support our grieving friends and family on a deeper level, but we do not know-how. Social distancing makes meaningful connection even more challenging. While grief support is not easy, it can be simple. Join us for this Power of Knowing presentation to learn concrete ways to support those who have experienced a loss.
