Grieving the death of a family member can be hard and painful, especially now with COVID-19 bringing new challenges.

Here’s a way to find support: Anderson Funeral Home in Alexandria is sponsoring morning and evening grief seminars, “Growing Through Our Grief.”

The seminars, which will be held online, will start Monday evenings at 6 p.m. beginning on Feb. 22 and continuing through March 29; and on Tuesday mornings at 10 a.m. from Feb. 23 through March 30.

Jeri Dawson, aftercare coordinator at Anderson Funeral Home, will lead the seminars online. The seminars are intended to meet the needs of anyone working through the grief process resulting from the death of a loved one and to provide support to get through the steps of grieving, Dawson said.

There is no charge and everyone is welcome to participate.
