Attendees learn from others who have walked the same path, gaining insights on how to manage their grief and emerge stronger. They discover that pain and loneliness do not last forever, learn practical tips on coping with the death of a spouse, and most importantly, they receive the gift of hope that there is indeed life beyond loss.

Past GriefShare Volunteer Facilitator

I so enjoyed GriefShare when I took the class 11 years ago when my husband of 40 years passed away from cancer. I went to several groups during that first year but enjoyed the faith-based part of this one and also the videos which keep everyone on topic. I sat at Gloria’s table at the Bibleville Christmas Party at the Rock Church in December the previous year. Somehow the topic came up after I shared, I’d lost my partner. I kept her number and called to see if I could help that next Fall. I had known Jodi from my sister’s connection with The Neighbourhood Church. It’s interesting how things fall into place.Through helping Gloria, I have been reminded that grief does last a lifetime, but the deep hurts and pain can be lessened, and we can go on to have the fulfilling life God intended. Death is a part of life here on earth also and everyone will eventually experience it. Once we’ve experienced such deep pain God also says we can and should help others as they experience similar things.


GriefShare Volunteer and Facilitator

I'm Marg Fair. I started facilitating GriefShare in Waldheim in 2019. I had previously attended two RR GriefShare in the Neighborhood Church Cafe after the passing of my husband in 2018. Gloria, Lucretia and Donna B. were compassionate facilitators. I couldn't do grief alone, I needed people who could understand my pain. I started a widdows' GriefShare alumni called Soul Sisters. I have facilitated three RR GriefShares alone and two co-facilitating with Gloria at Arcadia Funeral Home.
