About

The journey that begins for those left behind at the death of a loved one can be lonely and sad. Knowing that someone is reaching out to you by phone or visit to see how you're doing can be exactly what's needed to get a grieving person through one more day, one more month, one more holiday season. Caring volunteers provide this support to bereaved family members following the death of a loved one. Often the bereaved person is a spouse who is now living alone. Having someone to talk to, to share with, to reminisce with is a special gift offered to the family member by the volunteer. Maybe it's just a weekly phone call. Or perhaps it's several visits a month. Mostly it's about being there, and caring - our families will be very grateful!
