    Moving On discussion group

    Join us for this interactive discussion group for surviving spouses of retirement age. How do you move on after the death of a beloved spouse and the shared life you’ve had together over many years? After such a profound loss what can you do to build a new existence based on your new reality? We look forward to sharing observations, experiences and ideas with you. We will meet on the 2nd and 4th Tuesday of each month.
