Part of our legacy will be telling our loved one’s story, the good and the bad. We are the truth bearers now, the ones who can keep their memories alive and bring a cautionary tale to others.


My son knew I could survive his loss. I miss him, cherishing every moment and memory. I love him enough to let him go and be at rest, free from his pain.

His Mom

I thought of you today
I thought about you yesterday and days before that too.
I think of you in silence,
I often speak your name.


We shall never be ashamed of your choice, just heartbroken forever.


Your life and death won’t be without meaning. … If even one life can be saved from telling our story, then the ripples of your legacy, your life and even your loss will be without end.
