A. J. Desmond and Sons Funeral Directors is hosting a free community event called Coping with the Holidays for those grieving the loss of a loved one. Sure, this is a tough subject and is the "elephant in the room" at social and family gatherings. Everyone experiences loss; no one is immune. So let's talk about it.
The event is Thursday, Dec. 3 at 7 p.m. The funeral home is in Troy on Crooks Road.
