In Loving Memory of Our Children
Always Loved
Never Forgotten
Grief Suppot After the Death of a Child

When a child dies, at any age, the family suffers intense pain and may feel hopeless and isolated. The Compassionate Friends provides highly personal comfort, hope, and support to every family experiencing the death of a son or a daughter, a brother or a sister, or a grandchild, and helps others better assist the grieving family. We are a national nonprofit, self-help support organization that offers friendship, understanding, and hope to bereaved parents, grandparents and siblings. Our meetings are open to family members who are grieving the death of a child of any age and by any cause. There is no religious affiliation, and there are no membership dues or fees. Our goal is that everyone who needs us will find us and everyone who finds us will be helped.
