Grief

Grieving the Living

Grieving is a natural part of life. When we love people and lose them, we grieve to help us come to a place of peace and acceptance. And as we come to terms with the often painful void that is created with that loss, we are able to find hidden strength to forge ahead with renewed purpose.

Grieving Alone Together

Rex and I (Connie) lost our only child seven years ago. Todd Michael Kennemer battled bipolar disorder and lost the fight on November 17, 2005 when he took his own life. That began our trek down the unending, unpredictable Grief Road.

My friend Marilyn said it in a simple sentence: “Grieving Todd’s death is now your full-time job.”
