Giving back through a life-changing experience.
We are so grateful for your visit. Here you can learn more about the vision & mission of Healing Roots, meet our Board of Directors, find out how you can partner with us and gather resources to help guide you or your loved one through the challenging but necessary process of grief.
Grief has been described as a wave, which seems a very fitting image. The death of a
loved one is like the tidal wave that knocks you off your feet and puts the whole world
upside down. It takes a while, but eventually you come up for air and get above the water
and start to see the shoreline again. But then little waves of grief keep coming. They grab
us at predictable times like special celebrations or anniversaries. But other times the
waves hit unexpectedly, like when we hear a certain song or when we smell the cookies
grandma used to make. While the initial impact of grief feels overwhelming, over time
the waves still come but the impact is not as strong, and healing begins to take place.
