Through our grief we have been offered many valuable resources from our family, friends, strangers, Hospice companion counselor to self-help books in how to accept our “new normal” and suggestions on moving forward. We hope you too will find solace in one or more of the listings below. If we have learned one thing in our loss, it is to lose our prideful mindset and lean on others who are willing to walk this journey with us.
