Openings are limited and participants must commit to attending all four sessions.  Limited to 2 members per family, and each will need to dial in separately.  Preference will be given to those who have lost their loved one within the past 24 months.

This is a basic Table. Adjust borders and backgrounds to match the site style.
But do not go overboard. Tables are heavily used in the admin interface so do not change anything that will break the admin screens.
Do fix tables for mobile responsiveness though. We do not need to make the admin interface mobile friendly.
