Chat Center/Message Board

Journey Thru Grief has opened a "Chat Center" for those who wish to join others and just chat. Please remember, this chat room is for people who are grieving and need the support. Hearts are tender so please be kind and offer your support to those who need it. The "Chat Center" is open for all who want to use it except at times when specific topics are scheduled. Please check the "Chat Center" schedule. If the "Chat Center" becomes heavily used, additional rooms may be added.

In addition to the Chat Center, the Message Board access has been moved to share this page. This is an all NEW Message Board.

All NEW Java Chat

Personal Note: I hope this will work for AOL users.

You must have a Java enabled browser such as the latest Internet Explorer or Netscape. This should also work for AOL and MAC users.  All you have to do is click on the picture below and it will take you directly to the chat room.

Chat Center Schedule 

At the request of several of my widow and widower friends, the Journey Thru Grief Chat room will be open every Friday and Saturday evening, starting at 8 PM EST to help ease the loneliness of the weekends. You are welcome to join us.

I highly recommend the Grief Recovery chat at GROWW. You can find a link to GROWW in Favorite Links. 

If anyone would be interested in hosting a chat session,
