Remembering Your Child During the Holidays "Remembering Your Child during the Holidays" will be the focus of the St. Joseph-Breese Share meet- ing at 7 p.m. Tuesday, De- cember 10, in the hospital Board Room. "Christmas can be a challenge for anyone who is grieving but this season can be especially difficult for those who have lost a child," said Karen Gebke, host of the group with hus- band Scott. "One of the questions that comes up is how to--or if you should-- remember your child at this season," she said. "For some parents, re- membering their baby or child at the holidays, pos- sibly by lighting a candle, hanging a special ornament or wearing a special piece of jewelry, is helpful but there are no right or wrong answers," she said. "With a little consideration, you can determine whatworks for you and your family." Those attending the meeting can, if they feel comfortable doing, so, share their own ideas; other sug- gestions will be provided at the meeting. Share is for parents and families who have lost a child. Everyone is welcome, not just parents who de- livered at St. Joseph's in Breese, and there are no restrictions on how long ago the loss occurred or how long someone can attend. The group generally meets the second Tuesday of each month. Share is sponsored by the hospital's Women and Infants Center and there is no charge. In case of inclement weather, Karen Gebke will notify those for which she has contact information. Cancellation information will also be posted on the hospital's Facebook page.
