Losing a child is difficult on a family but a new group called the Compassionate Friends wants to help.
It's a national organization dedicated to letting families talk about their lost loved ones in a safe environment.
Janice Pantalion's daughter lost her son 3 years ago and starting the Shreveport/Bossier group has helped them both heal.
The compassionate friends group will meet at Virginia college in Pierre Bossier mall at 6:30pm every first Tuesday of the month.
