At this time of year when everyone is preparing to celebrate Mother's Day and Father's Day, it is important to create a time to honor the memories of parents who have died, whether the death was recent or in the past. This workshop, presented by Arbor Hospice's Grief Support Services, will focus on ways to include our parents in the legacy we create in our own lives. Participants will share experiences and reflect on how their parent's death has influenced their lives.
