Keeper of Memories
Wednesday, November 28, 2018 by Cynthia Waderlow MSE, LCSW
I’d like to extend some brief thoughts about family grief through the holidays. There is a lot written on the subject to be found on the internet and various bereavement books. No wonder, because holiday traditions have “normal” and “what we always do” baked into them. When a loved one central to the family has died from suicide, these days can be approached with perhaps too much hope that they will help us feel better, or only dread or confusion.

From the Desk of Father Rubey
Friday, May 01, 2015 by Father Rubey
You may never have heard of Tommy Caldwell and Kevin Jorgeson who recently completed a climb in Yosemite National Park. They scaled the Dawn Wall in Yosemite which is considered the most treacherous climb in the world. I followed their progress as it was reported in the newspaper. I was fascinated by their dedication and their tenacity as they persevered to reach their goal. At the end of the climb one of them remarked that everyone in life has a Dawn Wall to scale.
School Age Children and their Grief Processes

Our LOSS children’s program receives calls from parents who previously had no need to consider counseling services for their school age children.   Parents may have been challenged to keep up with the flourishing child’s social schedule, tutor, team sports, music lessons,… but had no reason to consider that their child’s rapid developmental progress might be impacted by a profound loss, such as suicide.
