A nonprofit, support group for families who are grieving the death of a child will begin on Monday, Nov. 6 at 7 p.m. at the West Tisbury Public Library.

The Compassionate Friends (TCF) is a world-wide organization formed in England more than 40 years ago. Terry Pothier of Oak Bluffs, Cindy Douglas of Vineyard Haven, and Anna Marie D’Addarie of Oak Bluffs have worked together to start this new chapter of TCF on the Vineyard, which will include regular meetings, a newsletter, a lending library, and caring environment in which to talk.
