"It’s hard for those that have lost a loved one to find joy in the holiday season, especially when it is everywhere you go," says Jolene Senek, Bereavement Coordinator for The Hope Center, LBSW, CT-GC-C. "This workshop will provide you with some creative ways to honor your loved one during this season in a calm, peaceful environment amongst others who have experienced a similar loss."


Hope for the Holidays is scheduled for Dec, 10 and 17 from 6 p.m. until 7 p.m. at the Home Hospice office located at 505 W. Center St. in Sherman.
