Grief is normal.  If we care about another, sooner or later, we will experience grief.

This website exists as an extension of the mission of the Community Coalition on Grief and Bereavement in the four counties of the northwest corner of Michigan's Upper Peninsula.  Our goal is to provide grief education, support, and referrals to the people of this area.

 Next Meeting - Annual Meeting:
Tuesday, Sept. 15, 2015 at Noon

both meetings are dutch treat luncheons to be
held at
Kangas Cafe in the old Hospital.
