Many times we find ourselves after the loss of a loved one with many unanswered questions and feelings that we just don’t understand. Grief is a process and must be experienced and moved through for us to completely heal from our loss. It is evident that needing a little help through this process is very commonplace by the number of grief groups that have been organized to help us. Many people utilize these groups and have received a great deal of help and created many new friendships as well.
We have organized a grief group that is available to anyone feeling they would benefit from it. It is led by Dr. Randy Cochran.
We also offer a specialized grief group for those that have lost children so that they can be with other families that have experienced the same type of loss.
We ask that you contact Randy Cochran directly at his office (405) 627-9636 and find out if this group would be of help to you. There is no charge or obligation on your part. It is a service that Matthews Funeral Home provides because we feel it benefits our community. Grief books and pamphlets are available to you at our office. Please contact us if we can help.
Other grief groups are located throughout the Edmond /Oklahoma City metro area. We have listed a few below, but there are many others who can help. If in doubt contact your local health care professional.
If you feel you could use a little help, don’t hesitate any longer. Get in contact with a group today.
