I recently lost my wife to cancer and am very lonely, but no body want to talk about it or help even. I have tried a lot of so called help channels, ie Community Link etc . and the best they can come up with is coffee mornings and counselling at Leigh Miners ,nothing in Wigan WHY

I would like to attend a bereavement group of self like people in Wigan in the day time as I am 80 and do not drive in the dark. Your heading is very true Dying does Matter so lets address it please.

As can be seen Jo Anne's post was posted 21 st Feb and no one has bothered to answer or comment even. Maybe they will when death enters their lives.
