LOFT- Living Objectives for Today
Perhaps the most devastating experience that has taken place in our lives was the death of our wives or husbands. It has been said that only another widow or widower truly understands the emptiness and loneliness that accompanies this experience for which we were so unprepared.
LOFT is a local organization for widows that seeks to provide an opportunity to share our concerns and problems, and at the same time offer assistance in dealing with a variety of aspects of life without a spouse. Our meetings, which are held the at 11:00 a.m. the first Thursday of each month, occasionally feature speakers in appropriate areas such as nutrition, legal and financial issues, and home security. At other times we have been fortunate in having someone speak on topics such as health issues. We also have an annual picnic and a Christmas luncheon held at the Greencroft Club where we exchange gifts and also donate childrens gifts for a local organization for their annual Christmas party. On all occasions we enjoy meaningful fellowship with each other as we search for help in adjusting to the difficult life style in which we find ourselves. This service is fully funded and provided for by Hill & Wood for any widow or widower regardless of who has been your funeral home of choice.
We invite you to attend LOFT, where you will feel the warmth and friendship of others who share your experience and where it is hoped that you will gain assistance in coping with life in the days ahead.
Please call if you have questions or feel you would like to talk further with me concerning our program or would like a schedule of meetings dates and prospective speakers.
