Losing a loved one has so many strong, opposing emotions.  Those strong feelings can present at the most unpredictable times.  Sometimes the tears are because he or she is reminded of their loved one’s favorite cereal in aisle 14 of the grocery store, or a special song is played on the radio, or a person walks by with the same cologne.  The extreme emotions of a loss may seem overwhelming to manage.  When there is intense sadness and anger, coupled with joys of sharing a memory with a friend, it may seem like a roller coaster that is far too difficult to navigate.

As the time passes, grief tends to seem cyclical to the seasons, events and memories, or a special time of the year.  As the days become shorter and the nights become longer, the bereaved tend to isolate from others.  Helen Keller once said, “Walking with a friend in the dark is much better than walking alone in the light.” That is why Baue Funeral Homes and The Center for Hope and Healing are incredibly proud to be hosting Dr. Alan Wolfelt on October 22nd at the Bogey Hills Country Club. Dr. Alan Wolfelt has been clinically navigating the grief terrain for most of his career and he is excited to present his insight to the community.

Through support of friends, clinicians, family, and community, the path will hopefully become a bit easier to brave.  Please register online at Baue.com/events. We hope that this evening is an opportunity to realize the you are not alone in your journey that’s one day at a time.
