Coping with the Holidays - FREE Grief Seminar – Sunday, November 21

For many, the holiday season is filled with family, joy and celebration. But for those who have recently experienced a death loss, it can be a season filled with apprehension and sadness. We have offered Coping with the Holidays for many years to all of our community with the goal of helping those affected by grief during the holiday season.

During this two hour gathering, Dr. James Coyle, Cedar Memorial's GriefCare and Community Outreach Specialist, will lead us through a discussion and time of reflection. Dr. Coyle will also offer holiday tips and resources that are available to all.

Dr. Coyle has had the opportunity to help families and professionals all across the US during difficult times. His life's passion has been to help those who grieve get to a better place, physically, emotionally, and spiritually.

With safety in mind, this year's Coping with the Holidays program will be limited to 75 people for in-person attendance. We also will offer the program live-streamed. Both attendance options do require registration. Please see the "Register Now" button at the bottom of this page.
