After working with families who have had a loss and having lost my Dad at a young age, I decided to create Life Shines On.  One thing that gave me a sense of comfort was when I would meet someone who had lost a parent, there seemed to be an instant connection; an unspoken understanding. I hope that this organization offers a supportive community to those whose parent has died.  I believe we all can find strength inside the pain.  In my work with adolescents and families, I have observed that many think that their parent is watching over them.  Maybe that's what makes the stars shine brightly.

Thank you for supporting Life Shines On...
