Review for Mary's Place, Inc., Windsor, CT, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Thirteen years ago my husband Dan kissed me, our three year old twin sons, and 8 week old daughter good-bye and left for work. I received a phone call later that morning that changed our lives. Dan was surveying a building; he fell from a three story roof and died instantly. He would not be coming home again. Although I had support from family and friends it was Mary’s Place that was our saving grace. The other young widow and widowers I met in group were walking in my shoes. They knew how I felt and often times what I was thinking. The support, healing, and hope my children and I found at the grieving center is beyond words. Because of how Mary’s Place has impacted my family, I now serve on the board. I feel indebted to and want to give back to the incredible organization that helped us during this most devastating time of our lives. I have since remarried a fellow young widower, we have blended our beautiful families and both feel blessed to have known about Mary's Place.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

many ways; As a participant in the young widow and widower group, as the surviving parent of children taking part in the young childrens group, as a board member, and as a supporter/donor of Mary's Place fundraiser events.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

There are so many young families that could benefit from Mary's Place if they only knew it existed. Please visit our web site to learn more about our center and help us spread the word.
