My name is George Smith. My primary loss came in 2008 after my sweet Sandi (spouse) died after 7 years of breast cancer. Grieving her death was the hardest thing I've had to do. In March of 2020, my first Grandson (Blake) was born and 4 days later we lost him to brain and spinal cord cancer. I've buried both parents, 4 siblings, and too many other friends and family.

Grieving is hard, really hard. It won't always hurt this badly though. There is hope for better days. You are not alone in this journey. GriefShare is a one of many great resources along your journey. In this program you will come alongside others walking a similar journey. Every grief is different but the pain we share with each other helps build a bond that gives courage, confidence, and builds hope for better days.

I am not a counselor or therapist, a simple laymen that God uses to hopefully make a positive difference as you walk this difficult road.

It takes courage to join a group. Thank you for leaning forward and allowing me and others to be a part of your healing.

Please order the $15 GriefShare Workbook from the GriefShare site. They will ship to your preferred address. The workbook is a primary tool in your grief journey.

This will be an online only Zoom group. Links will be provided each week to join our group. September 13, 2021 is our first meeting date. Two co-facilitators will come along to support you as well - Cheryl Riddle and Carlene Lord.
