“To experience the loss of someone I love Die by Suicide is heart wrenching. Words fail me as I describe the person I loved so much; the words of others fall short of consolation. Hope seems lost and though I am aware that my faith will sustain me I feel so empty.”
Grief in any loss is hard. The journey is difficult, seems to last forever and is a singular walk though others are walking beside me. To assist in this process the Died by Suicide offerings hope to share the common experience: affirming the sorrow that will not go away. Prayer, affirmation of the grief process, and some coping ideas will be part of our time together. All who have experienced a loved one who has died by suicide – either family, friend or classmate – are welcome.
