MURFREESBORO, Tenn. (WMOT) -- Teens from across Middle Tennessee gathered in Rutherford County this weekend for a unique opportunity.
Eighteen young people converged on a youth camp in LaVergne for a grief counseling session sponsored by Alive Hospice.
The organization provides palliative care for Tennesseans facing their last days, and also provides counseling to those left behind. Alive used a rock climbing wall to challenge the teens, all of whom have recently suffered the loss of a loved one.
Pam Quaintance is one of Alive’s grief counselors.
