Back in the 1990's, I lost my wife to ovarian cancer. I have three children who now are in their 30's and, even today, are haunted by that tragic event. Although The Cove was in its infancy at that time, unfortunately, I was unaware of its existence. So I am very committed as Chair of The Cove's Trustees to touch as many lives of grieving children as we can and help them journey the path to healing. The Cove has just opened a new Family Site in Easton, CT to service the grieving children and families in Fairfield County, CT including those affected by the tragic events in Newtown.

The Cove fully relies on donations of individuals and organizations. As we push to expand our geographic reach with the goal of providing services to all children across Connecticut, our finances continue to be stretched and our need of support continues to grow. I personally do not want any grieving child or family to have to walk that very difficult journey alone so I ask that The Cove Center for Grieving Children be selected to receive a grant.

Thank you.

Simon Etzel

The Cove is a wonderful resource to grieving families in Connecticut. It provides an atmosphere of trust and lets children and teens find comfort. I am proud to be a part of the Cove Center for Grieving Children.
