    Loved, Missed and Remembered

    4. Share your photo and tag anyone with whom you’d like to share your memory or any person you’d love to create a memory tile with their own memories either or your loved one or someone else they’d like to honor!

    Soaring Spirits programs have experienced a 30% growth this year and we think this is just the beginning of serving an increasing number of widowed people every year. Your donation of any amount will help us reach our goal of raising $30,000 this year in support of our 30% growth. Every dollar counts and every donation will be honored with a shared memory! What a beautiful way to make a difference as we also honor the endless nature of love.

    You are loved by so many Alison. In my lonely life without Mike, I feel so unloved…loneliness without my one true love just makes it feel like being unloved. I just hate this feeling.

    Yes a bizzaro world for sure! I can relate to every word you wrote! " I don’t feel of this world but I am of this world" “One of constant change and uncertainty and searching” When I quiet my racing mind, I think is this really my fucking life? How the hell did I get here and what am I suppose to do with this? Love you Alison XOXO

    I have never minded the word widow as a description of me, only what the reality of the word means if that makes sense. It is a powerful word and one to be proud of because of everything that encompasses a widow/widowers world from the moment that it becomes their label.
