The arrival of holidays sparks traditions and memories of years past. For those who have lost a loved one, it can be a challenging time.

COM is hosting a Coping with the Holidays Grief Support Group through Dec. 15, Tuesdays from 3:30-5 p.m. at the COM Learning Center-Delmar, 1130 Delmar in La Marque.

The series will give individuals ideas on new holiday activities and give them a time to share their stories.

Cindy Rincones, licensed master of social worker and bereavement coordinator at Hallmark Hospice, will facilitate.

“Holidays are so meaningful and full of traditions and memories of loved ones,” said Rincones. “This gives people ideas of new traditions and how to get them through this memory-filled time.”

Contact Rincones for more information and to RSVP at 281-333-4048.
