The Bereavement Group formed by Joy Murphy after the death of her husband Reverend Bill Murphy is open to all who have experienced the loss of someone important to them. It is meeting again at 2.15pm this Thursday in the church vestry and anyone is welcome to come. The meeting is informal for about an hour over a cup of tea and biscuit, for people to share or hear about experiences and coping strategies after the loss at some time of a loved one. The time between a person's death and their funeral is often very busy and full of practical arrangements. Often it is only after the funeral that the full extent of loss affects the bereaved. Grieving is a natural and important part of coming to terms with and healing this loss and it may continue for several months. There are patterns and themes to bereavement but each person is different and it is important for people to be supported in finding their own way through grief.
If you would like to speak to Joy her number is 01296 428319 or email here on firstname.lastname@example.org. Alternatively try the Cruse website: www.crusebereavementcare.org.uk.
