Thank you so much for all the work you are doing at soaring spirits. My husband lost his 1st wife unexpectedly. We attended camp widow last year and my husband was able to connect with so many other widow(ers). We attended workshop about grief and recovery -- it was so very helpful to both of us. We also read widow's voice for help and encouragement that we are not alone in this. Connecting with others ont he same journey helps so, so much -- and soaring spritis has enabled that connection to happen for us and for so many others. We are looking forward to attending camp widow again this year.

I am so glad that programs such as Soaring Spirits exist. When my friend tragically lost her husband, she desperately needed to communicate with people who had walked in her shoes. She was able to find that through Soaring Spirits. As a friend, I can only do or say so much, and without having experienced her pain, it's impossible to know what she needs to hear. I am so happy to see how much Soaring Spirits has been able to help her and how it continues to help her in ways that only they can.

SSLF has changed my life in so many ways. I lost my husband in 2009 after a 2 year battle with cancer. He was 26 when he passed away. I was 27. The devastating loss was just compounded by the feelings of loneliness felt in not having any around me that I could relate to. To be so young and deal with so much is so difficult, and doing it alone makes it almost unbearable. When I found SSLF online through other widows that I met on facebook, my whole life changed. Not only was I not the only widow in the world, but I wasn't the only 27 year old widow whose husband died from cancer. Finally someone to relate to. Someone who knew exactly how I felt. I love SSLF. I see women just like me who have moved forward with their lives and I know it is possible. The support and love that radiates from everyone involved in SSLF is so overwhelming. They are an amazing organization. I hope they can continue to help other lost souls like me.

My Brother Matt died in 2008 in a work related accident. SSLF has helped my Sister in Law Andrea in so many ways I cant even find the words to describe the support and dedication to helping her deal with the loss of her life. Thank You Greg Row

Soaring Spirits has helped my Aunt Andrea a lot. Since the death of my Uncle Matt, and her soul mate, she has gone to the conferences and being surrounded by people who could actually truly understand how she was feeling. She could laugh with them, cry with them and have a good time. I think this foundation is necessary, many people struggle with the loss of a spouse and I think without a foundation like this, that struggle would be longer and harder.

From what I have heard the organization has helped MANY widowed individuals in their time of need. It is VERY important for an organization like this one to be around because being in the situation of a widower it can be a very scarry time especially if you have no one to share this frightening expereince with. Keep up the good work!!

I have witnessed the effect that Soaring Spirits Loss Foundation has had on a friend who tragically lost her husband. She received outstanding support from those who had actually stood in her shoes. They are there for widows during the worst times, and continue to be there long after.

This is a wonderful organization- one that serves people in their time of greatest need. I know firsthand that after experiencing the sudden loss of a family member, support from people who've been there means EVERYTHING. These organizations are few & far between. I have seen how Soaring Spirits has helped a friend. After losing her spouse, this organization was there for her. She has begun helping others through this group. One thing that can help with a loss is trying to make something, anything, positive come out of the situation. SSLF has done this for my friend. She has used her pain & experience to reach out toward other widows. I wish no one ever had to lose a loved one, but since that is not reality, I am so grateful this organization exists.

Seeing my friend survive after her loss. I know how hard this is, and just the fact that she is doing "fine" speaks volumes for this organization. Comparing my mom, who couldn't function after losing her spouse, to my friend, who had this support- I know it has made a difference.

Allow to to reach across a greater area. Everyone who experiences a loss should receive support like this.
