I have volunteered with Snowball Express for 6 years and work with the Organization Gold Star Wives of America (Military Widows/Widowers) providing support, friendship, information. I have seen this great organization grow and provide a wonderful event for our Children of Fallen Heroes. They truly care and it shows by the manner of respect they show the children and spouse, guardian, who attends the event and through out the year. Building memories and lifelong friendship and support is what a Gold Star Family truly needs. SBE is one of the many organizations who provides such. I am a Vietnam Widow and working with the recent widows/widowers, Board, volunteers, Patriot Guard and so many is both heartwarming and heart wretching thus a life changer to those who have walk the shoes before 9/11. This is so important for one who did not have the support of knowing another widow for many years this opportunity that SBE provides for the children to meet other children like them and it so benefits the spouse / guardian who also builds support and friendship. As a Military Widow one of the most important things in your life is to know you are not a lone in your grief nor our the children. Thus SBE fills this space for many.
