Led by grief counselors in the conference center of the John & Cathy Belcher Campus, 90 Ritchie Highway in Pasadena, guests enjoyed tea, finger sandwiches and sweets while taking part in activities with others who have experienced similar loss.

The event traditionally held around Mother’s Day leads to moments that are equal parts laughter and tears as well as another step in their shared journey of healing.
