TUESDAY, DECEMBER 19

St. FrancisAVON – Sharing the Light Wholistic Center
Pet Loss Grief Support Group – DORY DZINSKI, LPC
Our pets are our hearts. They are an indelible part of the fabric of our lives. When they leave us, the hole is nearly unbearable. However, the loss of a companion animal is a marginalized loss. Unless one has been lucky enough to experience the love of an animal, it is difficult to understand this loss. We may hear comments and questions that don’t match our feelings and we cannot find many places that will hold space for our pain. Come be with others who have sustained the loss of a beloved companion. Held at 395 West Avon Road. Contact Dory for questions and registration: (860) 693-2840 or dorydzinski@comcast.net
