I am so thankful for this program! I work with adults who have lost a loved one in our hospice and experiencing intense grief. Our two-part mosaic workshop allowed them to realize that they are not alone in their grief, and that there are tools available to help them cope with their loss. Losing someone we love is one of the most difficult life experiences someone can have, and I’m so thankful that we were able to give them the opportunity to find meaning in the midst of that loss.”
