Meet Tim Lynch

Wednesday, September 11 2019 by Curtis Paige

Meet Tim Lynch. Tim has been a participant in Heritage’s GriefShare group since January of 2016. Although there are only 13 sessions in the program, Tim continues to attend, hearing something new in each session, each time he sees it. Tim has come so far in his journey of grief that he has come from a place of agony to a place of helping the others in the group as they go through that journey.

Hello, my name is Tim Lynch, and I was introduced to the GriefShare group here at Heritage United Methodist around January of 2016 about a month after the loss of my 30-year-old daughter and 5 year grandson. After their murder in December of 2015, I didn’t know how to get my life put back together and recover from the shock of their loss. Nothing I had ever been through prepared me for the level of pain I would experience during this time. This GriefShare group became a vital part of my recovery, and along with the support of my family, I started my journey to put my life back together. Week after week after week I would start putting into practice what I would learn, as I look back on the last three years plus, I would have to say that without the support of this group and my family, I don’t know where I would be today. Now I look forward to helping others in the group that are where I used to be, and giving them hope.

If you feel that you or someone you know might benefit from this group, we meet each Tuesday evening from 6:30 until around 8:00 in room B-1. For more information, please contact Curtis Paige at or 727-796-1329 ext. 147, or you can register online by clicking “Register for this group”.
