This site is run by The Dougy Center for Grieving Children. It's purpose is to provide families loving support and a safe place where children, teens and their families grieving a death can share their experiences as they move through their healing process.
The mission of the International Children's Memorial Place is to provide a place that is environmentally conducive to the promotion and improvement of both mental and physical health through nature, communication, and education.
At one time or another all of us experience the death of someone we love: a parent, child, spouse, sibling, friend, or a beloved pet. We all have stories of grief. No two grief journeys are exactly the same, but professional counselors say there are general stages of bereavement we all experience. Regrettably, we need to deal with the practical aspects when death occurs. Funeral planning, securing airfare, renting a car. I want to provide some tips to make these arrangements easier.
