BRIDGEPORT, Ohio (WTRF) – The holiday season is known to bring joy and light into our lives, but loss can change that feeling for many people.
Sherrie Dunlevy is a motivational speaker, aiming to shed light on the joy of living after loss.
She says that because the holidays are already a stressful time of year, in addition to mourning the loss of a loved one, she has partnered with Wilson Funeral Home in Bridgeport to host a workshop to give people a plan. tips, self-care strategies, and conversations to enjoy over the next few months.
“Keep the lines of communication open. This is a workshop not only for the bereaved, but also for the people who love them. If you’re worried about your mom, if you’re worried about your sister, if you’re worried your dad can’t handle the holidays this year, or how they’re going to handle the holidays this year, that’s something that you can put together. Come to this together. I’m going to be there to help you help them and I’m also going to be there for the grieving person to help give them confidence that they can get through this time and maybe even enjoy it a bit.
