The workshop is an opportunity for youth ages 10 to 13 to share with peers while creating a personalized book honoring their lost loved one. The morning will include breakfast and sharing before working on creating a personal copy of “The Healing Book: Facing the Death – and Celebrating the Life -- of Someone You Love.”
