Dear Grief Hope Network members,
I apologize for not being active on this site for a few months. I created this site a in 2011, six years after my husband’s sudden departure to heaven when my son was 4 years old. God put it on my heart to help others going through the grief process and by then, I felt that I had my Ph.D in grief relief. Well, On February 26th of this year, my mother passed away it was back to grief kindergarten for me.
I am sorry that I have been unable to write any new blog posts, be active in the chatroom and respond to other members Blog and Forum posts. You see, the new grief I was feeling over the loss of my mother didn’t allow me to be there for anyone else’s grief. I thank all members old and new for keeping this site going and for being there for each other. This is a free site to all and was started by me, a fellow member for other members to support each other through the grief process. I’m only able to devote time to it after my mother/father working roles.
I am sorry if I have let any of you down. My son Michael, now 15 helps out by sending all the welcome emails to new members once a week. I feel bad for not being able to be there for you in your grief. And for not being able to acknowledge how difficult some of your first holidays have been without your loved ones; Easter, Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, 4th of July etc…
Like everything in life, you get out of it what you put into it. If there are any members who have any free time and would like to take a more proactive role on this site, I would greatly appreciate hearing from you. Any suggestions on improving this site are welcome as well. I hope that together we can provide each other Help for Today & Hope for Tomorrow.
At Grief Hope Network, we recognize there are several ways to help you feel better in the grief recovery process. Many people don’t feel comfortable in sharing their feelings with people they don’t know in traditional counseling sessions. As part of your online grief support, you can connect and communicate with other members at www.GriefHopeNetwork. I hope you enjoy this message; post your comments in the Chat Room, Discussion Forum or Member Blogs. Please reach out to other members for support there and share your thoughts and feelings as well. Please let us know if the member grief blogs and online grief discussion forums are helpful. I pray this site provides you Help for Today & Hope for Tomorrow.
