ONANCOCK, Virginia – Talking about grief and loss is a step on the road to healing.  Support groups offer companionship and understanding from others who have experienced a similar loss and know first-hand the challenges of living with grief. 

Riverside Shore Hospice offers grief support groups to help Shore community members take that step.  The support groups are held in seven locations throughout the Shore including Tangier Island and are free and open to everyone in the community.

Contact Linda Baylis Spence at 757-789-5000 or linda.spence@rivhs.com for more information, or ‘like’ Riverside Shore Hospice on Facebook for meeting reminders.
