The loss of a child can be devastating, life-changing, to the parents.
There are the cliches, the unfair expectations of “moving on.”
Compassionate Friends is a group of people with similar experiences, parents who have lost children. It offers opportunities for parents to network with other grieving parents.
The Sidney chapter hosts events for parents and families to memorialize their children. On Sunday, Sept. 12, the Sidney chapter will host a balloon launch and potluck dinner for parents of children who have lost children. The event is planned for 4 p.m. At the east gazebo near the pond at Legion Park. Please bring a dish of your choice and a table setting.
