Today, I am a mother to five children, now mostly grown, “four who walk and one who soars”. On July 27 of 1994, the day my daughter died, my life changed irreparably. I will never be the same person I was before my baby daughter's death. Nor do I wish to be. Since then, I have committed my life to the service of others suffering traumatic deaths, as it was in the darkness when I truly found my self.
