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.
