3rd Annual Death Cafe Helps Those Who Are Grieving During Holidays

SPRINGFIELD, Mo. – Lost & Found Grief Center is offering the public an opportunity for an open, informal discussion and educational session about how to deal with the holidays for those who are grieving and those who want to provide help to bereaved friends and family.
SPRINGFIELD, Mo. – With the holidays approaching, for some it’s not all about holiday cheer, gift giving and family time.

The approaching holiday season is one of the most difficult times for those grieving the death of a loved one and with family togetherness a traditional staple, the absence of a loved one can be magnified.

 Lost & Found Grief Center is offering the public an opportunity for an open, informal discussion and educational session about how to deal with the holidays for those who are grieving and those who want to provide help to bereaved friends and family.

The Lost & Found 3rd Annual Death Café is Monday, Nov. 18 at 5:30-7:30 at the Library Center on South Campbell.

During this event, practical suggestions will be discussed for establishing new traditions, modifying old traditions and reaching out to those who are grieving.

Participants will discuss aspects of the holidays that are especially difficult and will hear from others about how their families dealt with the holidays and established new and meaningful traditions.  The evening will end with a hands-on activity allowing all who attend to create a special ornament in memory of their loved ones.

Lost & Found hosts 4 Death Cafes each year to assist in opening a dialogue about death and dying issues, which is lacking in our current death-denying society.
