Graveside heart — #griefheart number 211

Graveside heart

Angie just recently lost her son. Another loving soul became a victim of this opiate epidemic. Another mom joined the club no one wants to be in. She was visiting Michael’s grave and someone had left this. Such a sweet gesture. At first I thought it was a potato! On closer inspection I saw it was a rock. It’s been just 6 weeks for Angie, Michael’s mom.

I have to confess, I don’t feel like a rock today myself.

I help people foster a culture of connection to prevent suicide, reduce substance misuse and find life after loss. My motivational, training and workshop topics include suicide prevention, addiction, mental illness, and grief. As talented and funny as Charles was, letting other people know they matter was his greatest gift. And now the legacy I try and carry forward in my son's memory. Professional Speaker Website.
