Thank you heart – #griefheart number 162

Thank you heart
Thank you heart

This thank you #griefheart is for all of you that have supported me in my grief following Charles’ suicide.  I believe that you have to have a support network to be able to move forward and thankfully I’ve had that.

It’s my hope that this project has raised awareness of those grieving the loss of a child or a loved one by suicide. And that all those families get support for their loss.

What is the #griefheart project?

I explain my #griefheart project here.

One thought on “Thank you heart – #griefheart number 162”

  1. We thank you for sharing Charles’s story. You have definitely increased awareness of the suffering and pain of those who have lost a loved one to suicide, and the need to eliminate any stigma associated with getting help for mental illness and substance abuse/addiction. I’ve learned a lot. xoxo
