I have known the founder of this organization for many years and deeply appreciate the amazing service Soaring Spirits Loss Foundation is providing to so many women. As clinical director of a nonprofit social service agency, I had the opportunity to see first hand what a well-run nonprofit organization can do to change the world. SSLF is changing the world in such a concrete and wonderful ways. The work of SSLF is so needed in our world. As a mother, I witnessed the great need for an organization like SSLF when my son died at age 31 and left a young widow and two small children. The resources were slim at the time. Today, SSLF is there changing lives!

I have experienced the results of this organization through a dear friend of mine who has been involved with SSLF from the very beginning. It is profound for me to see the gifts the women have received, have shared with each other, and are sharing with the world around them.

I have followed Andrea (andrearemembers) for quite some time and am amazed and astounded at the help, love and support she has received from your Soaring Spirits. I have walked by my Mother's side for 3 plus years since she lost my Dad after 58 years of marriage. Some people would say she is one of the lucky ones, she had a full life with him. Grief is grief regardless of the length of time you had your loved one. I think this soft place to fall for the widows and widowers is such a blessing. Please continue your great work and my God bless you.

Having been introduced unwillingly to the arena of young widows and those facing tragic loss by a member of this organization who is a personal friend, I can speak to the necessity and value of this organization as a vehicle for support, healing and hope. SSLF fills an underserved need....and I, for one, am grateful for their mission and dedication to helping those like my friend journey back to being whole and happy after suffering a devastating loss. My highest recommendation goes to this organization.

The Great!

the way they gave my friend a sense of purpose, belonging and support as she grieved and made steps to move forward after her loss. SSLF gave her not only a group of supportive and understanding peers, but a purpose...a drive to turn something devastating into something positive.

empower them to do more with additional funding through grants and community support!

There are limited resources out there for the recently widowed, but soaring spirits works extremely hard to fill that void. As a young widower with a baby and a toddler I was, and still am, in a extremely small and unfortunate minority. Soaring spirits connected me, and numerous others, with people and resources that I would otherwise be without. Until you're in such a situation you have no idea how import such an organization really is.

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!!!

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.

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 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.
