Bereavement Support Groups
Hillside Memorial Park understands that losing a loved one is one of life’s most difficult changes, and grief can seem overwhelming. It is important to know that you do not have to go through the grieving process alone. We have partnered with Our House and Hope Connection to provide additional support and resources.
Grief is a natural reaction after the death of someone close. Yet in society, few people are prepared for the intensity and duration of the grief process.
