Vicki Lensing & International Broadcast to Be Featured

Every year, the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention (AFSP) airs a broadcast for Suicide Survivors that is watched at the same time around the world. In addition to our featured speaker, Vicki Lensing, from Lensing Funeral and Cremation Services, we will air the AFSP broadcast and then allow time to share thoughts and discuss the program with others afterwards.

Thousands of survivors of suicide loss will gather together around the world on this day for mutual support and practical guidance on coping with grief. If you have lost someone to suicide, please join us for this free event. Lunch will be provided. Free parking is available in the underground parking garage.
