ALEDO - Strategies for surviving the death of a loved one will be shared at Lifetree Café  on Thursday, April 9, at 7 p.m.

The program, titled "Surviving the Death of a Loved One: Finding Peace in Your Time of Loss," includes a film featuring Susan Burton, a woman who lost an infant child to Sudden Infant Death Syndrome.

"It's been 10 years," says Burton, "but Emily is still a part of our family and our life. You can't pretend the loss didn't happen-you've got to cope with it." Burton will discuss what proved helpful as she moved through grief and found peace and healing.
