Grief through the holidays
Holidays mark the passage of time in our lives. They are part of the milestones we share with each other and they generally represent time spent with family. For many people, this is the hardest part of grieving, when we miss our loved ones even more than usual.

Community event: Silent Grief Walk
On Sunday, November 1st any time between 9am and noon, Greenlake Park in Seattle will host a “Silent Grief Walk: To Honor Our Losses in the Community.” This is a chance for members of the community to come together and grieve in a socially distant way, for those lost to COVID-19, as well as other losses that have been endured during this time. If participants desire, they can also pick up a free black and yellow lapel ribbon to honor those lost this year.
