The loss of Joselito brought my family to circle of care loss support group. During the year we were able to work through our loss and grief. We celebrated Joselito’s life.
During this time we found out that my son needed open heart surgery. This was a stressfull few years. We attended circle of cares living with illness group. It helped us process our feelings and provided love and support.
We are years out of all of our immediate grief and i appreciate that i had circle of care for us. I will walk to remember Joselito and circle of care for i an so Grateful !!

A Community Healing Event - Open to All
Please join me for the Walk to Remember to celebrate the life of a loved one who has died and to help children build resilience as they grieve.
The Walk to Remember is a community healing event open to everyone. The Walk is also a fundraiser to support Circle of Care, a program to normalize feelings around death and loss, making sure that kids, like mine, know they are not alone in their sadness and grief and giving them the tools they need to speak openly about what’s too often considered unspeakable.
I invite you and your family to join my kids and me for this healing experience. And if you can, please make a donation to Circle of Care so no child has to walk their grief journey alone.
