From the Desk of Father Rubey
Friday, April 20, 2018 by Father Ruby
In May our country celebrates Mother’s Day which is a day when we honor our Mothers who are still here and fondly remember those Mothers who are a part of the hereafter. For those Mothers who are grieving the death of a child from suicide or those children who are grieving the loss of a Mother from suicide this is an especially painful day.
Family Conflict after a Suicide Loss
Friday, April 20, 2018 by Cynthia Waderlow MSE, LCSW
Infighting and conflict after the death of a primary family member is a difficult but recognized manifestation of grief. Suicide grief, in particular, can take us down to base level, sometimes to our most primitive responses of blame and rage. These initial feelings are common, and often part of the changed world after suicide loss.

When Children Defend Against Deepest Loss
Sunday, November 01, 2015 by Cynthia Waderlow MSE, LCSW
When our children are born, we reflect on their futures. We want to bless them on a pathway that will delight them, inspire curiosity and encourage them to try new adventures, all the while protecting them with a secure base.   We hope that they will lose their innocence gradually.

During the month of November we celebrate the feast of Thanksgiving which is one of the great American celebrations. It is a day when families gather to watch football and have a great meal of turkey and all of the trimmings. A lot of work goes into preparation for the day. All of the shopping that is done is for the food to make the day a real love feast. People try to outdo each other as they prepare the meal. A lot of love goes into the preparation for this day. In many instances Thanksgiving stretches into the whole weekend, it is more than just one day. Families are able to enjoy each other and each other’s presence. It is a great family celebration. Generally, people are in great moods because they are not tired out from running all over the place.
