'It's been very good today because I feel we have helped somebody new not to feel guilty about how we have all felt'.

'Opportunity to exchange experiences at a time of grief.  How other people overcome problems and make decisions allied to feelings of guilt'.

'Good opportunity to meet people in the same situation and discuss various scenarios that confront us.  Good to meet new people and offer and receive support'.

'This is my first time here and I have found everybody to be very welcoming and friendly.  They have listened to me and I have had the opportunity to speak about my loss and hear about theirs.  Hopefully next month will be a bit easier and maybe not so many tears.'

'I have made friends.  I enjoy the biscuits (cake would be nice occasionally though).  I have been given good advice sometimes.  It's good to talk and have a sympathetic listener or two.  It's a helpful group and a good idea.'
