Newly Bereaved Member Pack
We, The Compassionate Friends, are sorry to learn about the
death of your child, grandchild, brother or sister and extend our
sympathy to you.
The Compassionate Friends is an organization that offers
friendship and understanding to bereaved parents, grandparents,
and siblings. The purpose of this group is to promote a positive
resolution of grief by our willingness to listen and share through
our chapter programs. The group also provides someone to talk
to who understands. All of the people involved are parents,
grandparents, or siblings who have experienced the death of a
child, grandchild, or sibling.
Our chapter meets every second Tuesday of the month at 7pm at Arbor Lawn United Methodist Church
in Fort Worth. We usually end the meeting between 8:30 and 8:45. Some feel hesitant about attending
for the first time. However, most find mutual support and continue to come. The meetings provide a
platform for coping with our grief.
Each month you will receive a newsletter to keep you informed and to provide helpful healing
information. We also maintain a Lending Library at each meeting filled with resources available for you
We send our warmest wishes for peace and love.
