Testimonial by Cindy Foley
On the morning of August 20, 2012, I received a phone call from my sister, Candy, that would change my life and the life of my family forever. My brother died by suicide. I felt heartbroken, shocked, grief-stricken, and in disbelief.
As a survivor of suicide (what they call a family member or friend of someone who has died of suicide) I cannot even begin to answer the many questions that followed the impact of the loss of my brother. What I can tell you is the answer to a few questions you might feel if you are in a dark place emotionally, mentally, physically, and spiritually.
Yes, you will be Terribly Missed.
Yes, you are Special to me.
Yes, you are Loved.
Yes, there is Hope.
Because You Matter.
