PET LOSS SUPPORT
Bentley’s House – We provide a safe place where everyone can share their unique story about the loss they are experiencing. Whether it is recent or happened a year ago, it is real and we are here to help. There is no right or wrong way to grieve. We all handle grief differently and we understand and empathize with all of them. Bring pictures to share and the stories that are near to your heart. There are no rules except acceptance and compassion. We’re here to help and support you through the grief process. Join us the third Thursday of every month at Unity of Sarasota, 3023 Proctor Road, from 7:00 to 8:00 pm. For any questions you might have, please call Rev. Amy at 941-374-5811.
