Loss can come in many forms and the expression of grief or gratitude for the existence of people who have touched our lives is a deeply personal experience.  You are encouraged to pause here for details on memorials associated with Lawrence. 


Grieving is a deeply personal experience, but it doesn't need to be a solitary expression of actions or emotions. Coping is a process that can ground a person in a difficult moment and as such requires skills, allowances, and time to process such moments. 

In addition to communication with the Office of Spiritual and Religious Life, the Lawrence Health and Wellness Counseling Services are available for both walk-in and appointment services.
