The GriefCare Place opened its doors in June of 1997. It offers a SAFE PLACE where those grieving the death of a loved one can find support, education, understanding, and a caring place to heal. The center serves individuals of all ages, offers a home-like atmosphere and is a non-denominational faith based organization where those of strong faith or those of none can come comfortably.
The GriefCare Place educates participants about grief and provides caring volunteers who walk alongside and companion them during the grieving/healing process.
The GriefCare Place charges no fees and is funded entirely by fundraising events, donations, and memorial gifts. Since it is a charitable, non-profit organization, all donations are tax deductible under IRS section 501(c)(3). Financial support is a continuous need, greatly appreciated, and is responsibly spent.
*cut myself some slack - I am grieving
*Embrace the reality that
there will be tears
*Not get wrapped up in
what other people expect
*Look for small moments of
peace and comfort
*Reach out to & appreciate those who support me
*Take space from those who do not support me
*Remember that traditions can ebb, flow and flex
*Take a break whenever
I need to
*Seek comfort in
*Remain open to joy, even when it feels impossible
we don't get over it
we get on with it !!
All of us at the GriefCare Place are deeply saddened by the passing of Bruce Redmon, husband of our Founding Director Lou-Ann Redmon.
Bruce passed away surrounded by his family on November 1, 2022.
Bruce was an example of a life well lived for others! He was devoted to his family and showed his love for them in so many ways.
We will be forever grateful to Bruce for the countless ways he supported our mission; his memory is etched in our hearts and minds. We will miss you dear friend!
Please hold Lou-Ann and the entire Redmon family in your prayers in the days to come.
If you don't feel your best today, allow yourself that space!
This is HARD!
You don't have to process it all at once...
May time heal your sorrow
May friends ease your pain
May peace replace heartache
and may warmest memories remain
Love gives us memories..
Faith gives us strength
