I was invited to participate in a small, closely structured grief support group by Hospice Northwest about 4 months after losing my wife. This invitation came at a difficult time in my period of grieving, immediately following the death of Dorothea.

The contacts made with others who had suffered the loss of a loved one, with the group facilitator who had the responsibility of guiding the participants through a six week program, alleviated the sense of loss, which at times was very acute.

I would not hesitate to recommend this particular small group support therapy to any person suffering the trauma of losing a loved one and who feels that there are few, if any persons with whom they can commiserate at a very difficult time in their life.
