Coping With A Loss

Literature. Support Groups. Online Resources.

The experience of losing a loved one understandably causes overwhelming feelings of loss and loneliness. These feelings do not end when the funeral is over. If you, a family member or a friend is having difficulty adjusting to the loss of a loved one, please contact us. We will guide you to insightful literature, counseling and support groups specific to your individual needs. There is a way to overcome the sorrow, and we are committed to helping you find it.

GriefShare – Weekly Grief Group meetings

Our GriefShare support groups and seminars are led by people who have experienced grief and have successfully rebuilt their lives. They understand what you are going through and are dedicated to helping you heal.

Group meetings are held at Cavin-Cook Funeral Home & Crematory every Tuesday at 7:00 pm. The meetings are open to anyone over the age of 16. Seminars are posted on our News and Events page.
