We have proven that it is not only possible to survive such a devastating blow, but to eventually thrive.
But it wasn't long before we began receiving messages from Jessica and Joshua, assuring us that they were not actually gone ... and ultimately proving the existence of life after death.
Knowing that Jessica and Joshua's spirit was still with us, saved us.
The loss of our two children, Jessica and Joshua in a car accident caused by a drunk driver, is an unspeakable tragedy that no parent should ever have to go through.
"Those who bring sunshine
to the lives of others
cannot keep it from themselves."
- Sir James M. Barrie
My 16 year old daughter passed away July 2015. Then I met Beth June 2016 at a fundraiser and it was as if we were supposed to meet. The grief that I carry has been all consuming and I started meeting with Beth just to talk things out. Talking with Beth helped me to express the pain, and that all I was feeling was normal. It was nice having someone who could understand the depths of pain in losing a child. After all our meetings, I left feeling a little weight was lifted from my shoulders ... there is a bright spot out there ... just takes time. Her support has been a very important piece in my low process of learning to move forward in the grief.
I met Beth at a grief support group that she was leading. I was having a very hard time after the death of my daughter and needed someone to talk to. She was a great listener, nonjudgmental, offered comfort, and made me feel that no matter what I said, it was okay. Since she had gone through the same loss that I had, I felt that she understood the pain I was going through more than someone who had never experienced the loss of a child. I left feeling better and knowing I had a new friend. Even though the support group has ended, she still keeps in contact with me and I know if I need to talk to someone, she would be the person I would call. She has an amazing gift of insight and caring-I always feel better after talking to her.

It will show you the way."
I am here for you. Let's talk....
I am a mother who witnessed the death of her two children and had to find a way to survive.
I am so proud to say ... I survived and now I am here for you. I am here to help you take your next step. Take your next breathe.
Right after the accident, I knew I had to talk with someone who had a loss. Someone who actually had a loss as awful as mine or even worse. A friend of mine gave me her Aunt's phone number, who lost her husband and son in a car accident. As I called her, I realized this was my lifeline. I needed to hear her breathe. I needed her to say "I got through this. You can too!" After hanging up the phone, I thought to myself "okay...maybe I can." It sounds so little, but it was huge for me.
I started taking it minute by minute. Day by day. Tiny baby steps to survival. You can too!
