Loss of Spouse Support Group (L.O.S.S.)
Loss of Spouse Support Group is a six week structured support group that brings together people who have experienced a similar life changing event (death of a spouse or significant other).  This support group assists survivors by helping them to recognize, accept and learn that no one can control or explain death.  Death ends physical life, but not the memories and love.
