I met Andrea Row after she and her beautiful children moved next door to me and my family. Andrea and i soon became close friends of which I then heard the story of what had happened to Matt. All I could think of was "How is she getting through each day with such small children and still portrays amazing strength?". As I have gotten to know Andrea she has expressed to me that Soaring Spirits has been a place of comfort and a resource to reach out to other Men and Women going through similar situations. She believes so much in what Soaring Spirits has done for her that she wants to give back and help others by working with Soaring Spirits. We all Love Andrea and the kids and only want the best for her as she approaches each day with such courage and compassion.

Thank you Soaring Spirits for being there for my friend!!!

I got to know The Row Family when their son Jacob was in my class. What a loving family. Our whole school was so sad when we heard of Matt's accident and death. Andrea and her kids have been through so much since this happened. I can see Andrea getting stronger and looking at life in a more postive way...with the help of Soaring Spirits. This is a Foundation that seems to help the whole family when they really need help the most!!!!! Way-to-go. Love you all.

My friend Andrea tragically lost her husband Matt on November 15, 2008. Since that time Andrea has had to readjust to life without him. A life she never planned - raising two amazing children by herself, relocating to a new home, starting a new career. Soaring Spirits has helped her grow, heal and live new experiences. She has attended "Camp Widow" and is excited to attend again this year! I know that she looks forward to the events and time together with other members.

I find it difficult to put into words what Soaring Spirits has done for my dear friend. I believe that it has placed a patch on her broken heart - one that while it probably will never be fully healed - is secure enough to have the smile returned to her beautiful face and that is what Matt (and the rest of her family) is so happy to see. It has been an invaluable tool for her the past couple of years and I am forever thankful to everyone at Soaring Spirits who have helped Andrea on this journey.

My best friend, Matt, died tragically on Nov. 15, 2008. I lived with the loss (and still do) and witnessed the destruction it had on Andrea and her kids life. My wife and I did what we could, be there is only so much you can do. Since Andrea has been involved withSoaring Spirits I have seen her recover (as much as one can) from her loss and build a new life again. It makes me happy to see her moving on and enjoying her life. Thank you Soaring Spirits!

I feel my daughter-in-law Andrea has received a lot of support and love through Soaring Spirits since the untimely death of Matt. She has attended conferences, met many women living in the same situation and made a lot of friends, which is so meaningful. It matters not how the loss - albeit a long suffering illness or a sudden death, she understands the full impact of losing her husband, friend, lover and is sympathetic and helpful to others in her situation.

I wish there was a Soaring Spirits for Mothers that have lost a child....maybe I should start one!

My sister, Andrea Row, sufferd the loss of her amazing husband and father to her two young children: Sydney (3) and Jacob (6) over 2 years ago. I also lost my brother-in-law, who was every bit the brother - law or no law. Following this sudden and tragic loss, Andrea was fortunate to find the Soaring Spirits Foundation. The Foundation introduced her to a network of caring, supportive people, who have all been dealt a "bad hand", enduring the loss of a loving spouse. I believe it was the compassion and understanding shared by Foundation members which helped Andrea with the greiving process and to find renewed meaning and purpose after her loss. The Soaring Spirits Foundation provided an extraordinary role instilling hope for a better future.

My Husband's cousin Andrea lost the love of her life and father of her children in a work accident, it was a terrible situation that no one should ever have to endure, but there are many people unfortunately who do suffer from the loss of a spouse daily. Soaring Spirits Loss Foundation has helped Andrea cope through her loss, by getting her involved with others who have suffered the same loss. She is not alone and has many people supporting her, through this foundation, she wishes to do the same for others, provide support!

Thank you to the Soaring Spirits Loss Foundation for all of the help you provide to the widows and widowers out there. I have witnessed all of the good it can do after my cousin lost the love of her life in a tragic work accident and was left with 2 small children at home. She got involved with your organization and was able to connect with people that understood and that were going through similar experiences. Your organization has provided her and continues to provide her with the added comfort and support that she needs after the loss of my cousin! Thank you and please continue the beautiful work you are doing!

One of our employees, Matt Row, died at work in a tragic accident - it's been difficult on us (as friends), but especially hard on his family. For a wife to lose a husband at a very young age, with two small children to raise is unfathamable. It seems her saving Grace has been in two areas. The strong support from her (& Matt's) family and Soaring Spirits. In reading her blog and in general conversations, I could tell that Soaring Spirits made a difference in her life. Although she is still sad, and missing Matt everyday, Soaring Spirits has helpled her through this very difficult time.
