    I am a UB member living some distance from Huntington. My husband died very recently in a very sudden and unexpected manner. The grief program from the seminar would be something useful for someone in my position. Is it possible to post the major points with some subpoints on each major point on the church website or this one for those of us who are not in the Huntington area? If so, would you please reply to me as to where I can find it. Thanks for your consideration.
