New Facilitator New Group

We are happy to announce that Widows Widowers Support Group Inc will be launching an evening group beginning Thursday, June 1st. Preston Young will be facilitating the meetings, which will be held in the Saguaro Christian Church library located at 8302 E Broadway (near Snaroff) from 6:00 pm to 7:30 pm.

We appreciate those who step up to faciliate meetings to help the many of us, who are suffering the loss of a beloved spouse. We have found relief in our connections with others who are struggling with missing someone who once completed us. No one knows what it is like better than another widowed person--so cliche, yet so true. We help each other travel the difficult path of going from "we" to "me".

Many of our participants say they found the support of other group members, usually strangers who become friends, more meaningful than help they received from professional counseling. This may be due to the difference between academic training and actual experience in our situation.

___The Widows/Widower Support Group helped me come to terms with my situation. I learned to accept the emotions I was feeling, because I was with others who shared my experience. [R.K.]

___ I found the group helped me talk about feelings that I was afraid to burden my family and friends with. I received heartfelt and helpful advice from people who really understood what I was feeling. [J.V.]

___No one understood what I was going through until I shared my thoughts at a Widows/Widower Support Group meeting. Now I understand that my feelings are normal and there are others who completely understand my situation. [D.M.]

___These lovely individuals gave me much needed support. They helped me to understand the grief process and that what I was experiencing was a normal part of the grief process. I also learned ways to help myself cope. Most importantly, I have make life-long friends. [L.K.]
