Why I got involved in Grief Dialogues: Our connections define us, and we can accomplish far more together than we can independently. I’m excited to support the Grief Dialogues and its innovative grief therapy technique.

Why I got involved in Grief Dialogues: A friend of mine told me I nailed the grieving process when I wrote the song “Go On” for her mother’s death. Now I can share this song with Grief Dialogues.
