I appreciated this group so much.  It has been 14 years since I lost my mom and in this group I was safe to talk about it, cry about it and share my heart, it didn't matter how long its been.  I looked forward to the group each week, it was so good to have a safe place to come to where I could honestly face my grief.  Janelda and Dora are wonderful, I would recommend this support group to anyone who has experienced loss.
