If you have experienced the death of a loved one, grief is the normal and natural response to loss. INTEGRIS Hospice provides ongoing grief support.
The free six-week program conducted by Rev. Bob Willis, B.A., theology, provides a step-by-step approach for those who wish to resolve their loss issues and move beyond their grief toward a richer quality of life.
The program we take place Wednesday evenings, March 22 through April 26 from 6:15 to 7:30 p.m. at the Council Road Baptist Church, 2900 N. Council Road, Oklahoma City, OK 73008
Call the INTEGRIS HealthLine at 405-951-2277 to register. The program is free of charge, but space is limited.
Willis, a former INTEGRIS Hospice bereavement coordinator, was voted Spiritual Counselor of the Year in 2008 by the Oklahoma Hospice and Palliative Care Organization. He provided grief support following the Oklahoma City bombing, Nairobi Embassy bombing and the 9/11 attack in New York.
Since his retirement, Willis has led grief workshops and groups, speaking at conferences around the country. An accomplished sculptor and author, he wrote The Ultimate Caregiver: Words from the Cross to the Caregiver’s Heart, released in November 2008 (second edition 2014).
Normal grief responses include appetite loss, difficulty sleeping, feelings of guilt or regret, lack of concentration, mood changes, numbness and/or crying.
