Hospice of Michigan to host free Loss of Spouse seminar in Ada

ADA, Mich. (July 23, 2018) – Hospice of Michigan will host a free Loss of Spouse seminar and discussion on healing after the loss of a partner from 2 to 3:30 p.m. on Thursday, Aug. 9 at the Hospice of Michigan office located at 989 Spaulding Ave., S.E. in Ada.

With a message of hope, author and guest speaker Ron Gries will share excerpts from his book, Through Death to Life, while leading the discussion. Following his wife Patty’s terminal cancer diagnosis, a four-and-a-half-year journey began that brought ideals like preciousness of living, sadness of death, totality of grief, wonder of healing and overwhelming power of faith to the forefront of Gries’ life.

By sharing challenges of his grief, Gries helps inspire other grieving individuals on their journey of healing.

The seminar is intended for those who have lost a spouse or life partner. All members of the community are invited to attend regardless of whether their loved one received services through Hospice of Michigan.

Please RSVP to Sue Glover at 616.356.5255 or sglover@www.hom.org
