Share grief with family
FOLLOWING the tragic death of the 82-year-old grandmother this week, Lifeline Coral Coast Capricorn is inviting the local community to give any cards or condolences they wish to pass onto the family to the Lifeline Centre at 124 Quarry St, Rockhampton.
Lifeline Coral Coast Capricorn general manager Richard Johnson said an event like this could send shock to not only those directly involved, but to the whole community.
“For members of the community who would like to pass their condolences onto the family, they can do so through the Lifeline Centre in Rockhampton. Any items received will be passed directly onto one of the daughters (of the grandmother) and then on to the rest of the family,” Mr Johnson said.
“For some, the process of giving helps the grieving process and the process of receiving kind words or gifts can also help.”
Lifeline Community Care runs a program for older people within Rockhampton to increase the confidence of older people, bringing seniors out of isolation and reducing their fear of crime.
Safe and Confident Living Co-ordinator Andrea DeVries said the program also informed seniors of the true effects of crime on older people to help reduce fears.
