The holiday season is here, and more families than ever will be going through their first holiday without their loved one. Learning how to cope without your loved one is not easy. Grief is a journey, whether the loss was expected or sudden, and it is one that requires grieving and mourning.

This week we are talking to Brian Pendleton, Chaplain and Bereavement Coordinator at Saint Luke’s Hospice House about grief during this holiday season, how you can bring hope to your holiday if you have lost a loved one, and the support Saint Luke’s offers to those who are grieving.
