Grief Support Group
At Metcalf Funeral Home, we understand that a funeral or memorial service for your loved one is a positive first step in the grieving process. Family members and friends get a chance to say their goodbyes and, at the same time, they get to share strong feelings with one another.
In the days, weeks, and months following the service, people continue to need others to lean on for understanding, encouragement, and guidance. For that reason, many local and national support groups have formed. These groups provide a common place and a comforting environment for expressing emotions through each phase of the grieving process.
If you or someone you know is seeking grief support, please join us Sundays at 2 p.m. We offer a variety of types of support, open to all ages. Contact Jodi at 476-1225 with questions.
Groups meet every Sunday from 2 - 3:30 p.m. in the Roper & Sons Reception Facility at 4300 O Street.
To learn more, discuss grief counseling and support options with your funeral director, or contact us directly at 402-476-1225 or[email protected].
