Although I am deeply sad that so many join this community, before me and after me, I am thankful that there are so many touched by grief who want to reach out and share their most devastating, and renewing journey's in life, to help all of us in this community that are left behind."
Several dozen participants discuss a variety of topics, the most recent was related to the Back To Sleep Campaign and what the numbers really mean.
