The Compassionate Friends – South Central OK Chapter

August 6, 2019 @ 7:30 pm - 8:30 pm

First Baptist Church Marlow, 212 N 4th
Marlow, OK 73055 United States

We are profoundly saddened by the reason you need The Compassionate Friends, but we are glad you have found us. When a child has died, the whole world seems to have crashed around you.  An emptiness may grip you that nothing seems to fill. As shock finally fades away, you may feel a helplessness and depression that will leave you unable to function. The world has changed – and so have you. Your decision to walk through the doors of a meeting of The Compassionate Friends is a difficult one. But here you will not be judged and will find the friendship of others who truly understand much of what you are feeling. We join together to remember our children, siblings, and grandchildren, learn coping skills, and make friendships that can help carry us through the most difficult time of our lives. We need not walk alone. We are The Compassionate Friends.

When a child dies, at any age, the family suffers intense pain and may feel hopeless and isolated. The Compassionate Friends provides highly personal comfort, hope, and, support, to every family experiencing the death of a son or a daughter, a brother, or a sister, or a grandchild, and helps others better assist the grieving family.

The Compassionate Friends meets the 1st Tuesday of every month.
