November 21st–We are grateful to children and families who are holding on to hope as they grieve the loss of a family member or loved one. They have the courage to mourn, remember, and hope for living life beyond their loss. “Grief never ends, but it changes. It’s a passage, not a place to stay. Grief in not a sign of weakness nor a lack of faith. It is the price of love.”
