GRAND FORKS, ND (WDAZ)--Help for grieving families may soon be on the way in Grand Forks. 

Local experts say the holidays can be a time filled with heartache as people miss their loved ones.

A grief group is set to start in January for anyone wanting to work through the pain.

Group leaders plan to meet for about an hour each week to talk about their experiences.

They say holidays like Christmas and New Year's remind people of their loss.

"It brings up those experiences much more, and they're much more real at that time," said Pastor Mark Ellingson.
