From The Understanding Your Grief Support Group Guide:

“Grief, often the most profound form of sorrow, demands the support and compassion of our fellow human beings. Since the beginning of time, people have come together in times of grief to help one another. Grief support groups provide an opportunity for this kind of help and support. If you are a grief support group leader, thank you for your efforts to help create a “safe place” to nurture others. When you are privileged to witness the pain soften and hope emerge, you realize it is worth all your efforts.”
