About This Event

Lakewood is honored to welcome back Kelly Grosklags for this beautiful virtual ceremony, hosted over Zoom.

As the holidays approach, many of us feel overwhelmed by grief and loss. It’s important to understand that you are not alone. The journey of grief is challenging and processing this emotion, especially around the holidays, can be even more difficult. Join our host as she helps us explore and understand the grief we are feeling, honor it, and learn how we can heal.

This event will consist of a powerful and beautiful talk on grief with our speaker, followed by a ceremony where we will gather together (virtually) to light a candle and say the names of those who are loved and missed.

What to Bring

  • A candle to light during the end of the ceremony
  • (optional) A cozy drink or snack while you listen to our speaker
