~ A Chrysalis For Transformation ~

Some tend to feel abandoned in those early days of loss
after the rush of parting, the heart felt farewell gathering
filled with condolence, caring, memories — even laughter




A place to read and share stories of death and dying. Growing through the grief that comes before, during and after death
