Tear Soup: A Recipe for Healing is the title of a free bereavement workshop
offered by Great River Home Health and Hospice. Tear Soup: A Recipe for
Healing is scheduled at 10 a.m. Saturday, April 22, at Great River Hospice
House, 1306 S. Washington Road, West Burlington. The event will conclude
with a soup lunch.
Based on the book Tear Soup, the workshop will provide an understanding
of grief and suggestions for working through grief and helping others
with their grief. Participants will learn how to perform the “art”
of grieving and how to fill the void in life left by a loved one’s death.
Great River Hospice social worker Melissa Claassen, L.M.S.W., will present
“This program is as much for people who want to understand grief
and reach out to others to help with their grief, as it is for those who
are grieving themselves,” said Claassen.
Registration is required. For more information, or to register, please
