FOR GRIEVING FAMILIES
We have a special heart for those who are grieving. We both lost our spouses to cancer in their thirties and now have five children, all of whom lost a parent before they were ten years old. One of the special missions of The New Day Foundation for Families is to walk with families through the grief process.
