My name is Roberta Keene, May 31, 2010 my life was forever changed when my oldest son Jeremy passed away. I was lost, depressed, felt alone and had no idea how to help myself. I found out that a group of grieving moms were going to meet for a retreat in Gatlinburg, TN. I was very apprehensive!!! I had talked to some of the moms in our Wings of Hope FB group, but now I was meeting them face to face and spending several days with them. From the moment I walked in to our beautiful mountain cabin, I was at ease. These moms are now my life long friends, my sisters! At the retreats we laugh and for many of us it's the first time in a long time. We cry and it's ok. We talk about our children and people care instead of cringe. We honor our children and do activities to keep their memory alive. I have been to several retreats and I can honestly say it helped me more than anything else. Tragically on March 17, 2015 I lost my second oldest son Josh. My sisters in grief were there for me once again. The retreat I attended after his death gave me strength to go on. There is no other organization that has such an outreach of love and compassion and they put their very heart and soul into these retreats.
