Welcome to Young widow/widower's of Long Island

why go through this alone

I have witnessed many members who come into the groups totally lost find so much comfort in being connected with men and women their age going through the same loss.

which always frustrates me when a few will prejudge the group or what we have to offer without out giving this a fair chance . Sometimes grief makes us angry at all those around us and we want to isolate from the world . It takes action on your part to help you!
