From the Desk of Father Rubey……
Wednesday, January 1, 2014 by Father Rubey
You may have noticed that other members of the LOSS staff have periodically been writing the “From the Desk of….” column. In the upcoming year, Father Rubey will continue to write his articles but you will also see various LOSS staff offering their perspective on grief in the aftermath of suicide.
