Mourning during the holidays

If the loss of a loved one has you dreading or feeling anxious about the upcoming holiday season, a workshop on Saturday could help you out. Called “Coping with Grief at the Holidays,” the seminar will help people:

  • understand how the holidays affect grief
  • learn ways to cope with grief during the holidays
  • share life-affirming stories

The gathering will take place Saturday (Nov. 13) from 1 to 4 p.m. at the Central Rappahannock Regional Library headquarters, at 1201 Caroline Street in downtown Fredericksburg. To register or get more information on the free seminar, contact Diane Ebenal of Mary Washington Hospice at or call 540/741-2377.
