I have been involved with Forever Family Foundation since 2008. I love their goals and mission and it has helped me through the years more than I could ever say. The events that are put on by the Foundation are amazing! What a wonderful place to be with like minded good people. If you are looking for answers or just curious about the afterlife this is the place to look.

I became involved with the founders of the Forever Family Foundation because, like them, I had lost a child (for the second time) and was searching for answers to the questions of survival of consciousness. I had read a great deal of conventional literature on the subject and was getting no answers.

The FFF has taken an approach that provides a forum for those who are grieving the loss of a loved one, as well as those who are just curious about what comes after death, where they can listen to experts in the field and become involved in the discussions. This approach has proven to be one of the most effective ways of helping those searching for answers.

I have attended a number of FFF conferences and have personally listened to people explain how much the information exchanged at these conferences has helped them.

The Forever Family Foundation serves a unique purpose. In a world dominated by dogmatic, unscientific materialism, they disseminate empirical and scientific evidence pointing to the fact that human personality survives the death of the physical body. This is not a religious position - it is the most economical explanation for massess of compelling evidence. By disseminating such knowledge, the foundation provides real, tangible help for grief-stricken people. I am deeply honoured to serve on the Foundation's scientific advisory board.

It is an honor to sit on a Board of an organization that has no agenda, other than to truly help people and change the world. 100% volunteer organizations are a challenge to run, but the drive of our volunteers & staff (who do not get paid) is unusual and the transformation of the people served is immeasurable.

Years ago I was searching for some real evidence that my loved ones were still with me. With this Foundation I have found that and it has helped me through my darkest days of my grief. Since then I have been lucky to meet new friends that I can feel open and safe about talking about my beliefs. Also, so many of them want to be with me in my times of need. I cannot say enough good things about the Foundation. I suggest to anyone either curious or in need of the truth to check out the website. You can only benefit from it.

I have been a volunteer for Forever Family Foundation for about 7 years now. I have never been more honored and thankful to be part of a Foundation that is the BEST! It is run by Bob and Phran and I had the pleasure of meeting them for the first time at their first annual conference in San Francisco. This is when I knew I wanted to be part of this Foundation. They are the most sincere and compassionate people you will ever meet. They run the Foundation like a charm. They are always there for me in the good times and especially the bad. They have become GREAT friends! What I really like about the Foundation is that it is science based and based on facts. You do not get that from any other Foundation that I know of. They have completely changed my life and now instead of having a belief, I have a sense of knowing and that is priceless. I cannot say enough good about all of the people involved in this wonderful Foundation. I am blessed I found them!

I have been a member for quite a few years now. As you know grief takes you on a journey of deep pain and sorrow. I saw no way out of my sorrow. One day after a terrible loss, I was researching on the internet about grief and where we go when we leave this earth. When I came upon Forever Family Foundation, I knew this is where I needed to be. There are doctors, scientists and researchers that work hand and hand with them. Everyone in the Foundation is very compassionate and I am free to talk to any one of them about life and death. Today, I can honestly say that my life has been enriched by being a part of this wonderful Foundation. Words cannot say how honored and proud I am to be a volunteer. They have changed my life!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

I have gotten back to a place of peace. Yes, I still mourn, but it is different now. I am more educated on this subject and I have a group of people I can always count on. I have been at the annual conferences and witnessed people healing.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

volunteering and meeting other like minded people. I also enjoy the conferences and all of the events.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

build a retreat center! It could improve our website and help with more events.

I met Bob and Phran, the founders of Forever Family Foundation, because of our common loss of children, and am happy to support them in any small way that I can. Their foundation helps many people, often those who are grieving, by providing easy access to people who are able to help, regardless of whether the grieving person is a person of faith or, as in my case, a person with a scientific mentality. Their primary gift is hope - hope that we will see our lost loved ones again.

I listen, as often as my schedule permits, to the radio show presented every week over the internet. I find it interesting and thought provoking, and in my opinion, very well presented.

My wife and I first came across the Forever Family Foundation at a time of great grief. We had recently lost our 21-year-old son, Gabriel, in a car accident. Loving him with all of our hearts, the question of the possibility of his continued existence forced itself upon us. We did not wish to delude ourselves in thinking that he might still be with us if that were not the case. We would rather suffer from facing reality than to find comfort in illusion. Enter the Forever Family Foundation. The Foundation embodied our own perspective: Let the truth rule out, whatever it is; let us seek it. At its core, the Foundation is about research: identifying, supporting and disseminating information regarding critical questions relating to the possibility of human afterlife. Not only has it succeeded, but it has found a significant body of research to support such a notion. Furthermore, the Forever Family Foundation has established rigorous procedures of its own to identify individuals who might be able to serve as mediums (individuals who can communicate from the so-called dead to the living). Through its good efforts, the Foundation has been able to open up direct lines of communication from grieving individuals, such as my wife and myself, to those who have passed before us. Clearly, the notion is strange, but the Foundation has taken bold steps to challenge the untested prevailing belief that life ends with death. As we explain above, we are realists and prefer hard edges rather than false comfort. The Forever Family Foundation has helped us to engage a higher level of reality—to live with grief and an overarching sense of life transcendent.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

conferences, public lectures and personal meetings with mediums.
