Grief is hard enough to deal with when you lose someone special to you; however, losing a child may be the hardest grief experience for any parent or family member to bear. Most of us believe that our children will live for many years after our own deaths. So, what do you do if the cycle is reversed and the unthinkable happens? The speaker will be St.Vincent Salem Hospital’s former Chaplain and Certified Grief Trainer, Walter Glover. This seminar will last approximately 40 minutes and will be held in the hospital classroom on Saturday, June 7 at 11:30 a.m. Attendees are invited to bring their lunch with him.

“This seminar is meant to help those who are grieving the loss of a child to understand the processes they are going through,” said Steve Fisher, MDiv, chaplain at St.Vincent Salem Hospital. “This format will allow for listening, as well as sharing, if the attendees are moved to do so. We want to bring guidance and peace to those who are mourning the loss of a loved one.”

This is the second in a series of brown bag lunch seminars dealing with grief. Registration is required. To register, call Chaplain Steve Fisher at 812-883-5881 ext. 1201.
