Stephy’s Place: A Support Center For Grief and Loss recently hosted its 3rd annual “Mourning Walk” at Seven Presidents Oceanfront Park in Long Branch.
Hundreds of participants walked to Pier Village and back, in remembrance of their deceased, loved ones. The event signified the walkers’ intention to remember their deceased loved one and continue living with loss. Like the mourning process itself, the Walk is a uniquely, personal experience. Following the 3 mile walk was a short meditation and butterfly release.
