Welcome to My Personal Page
Twice a month, for the past 2 1/2 years, I have spent Tuesday evenings attending the Spousal Bereavement Group at Gilda's Club. While our family has always supported Gilda's Club, I certainly never wanted to NEED Gilda's Club. And then Jim died and my world was turned upside down. It was apparent that I needed help manuvering through the grief process and that is when, with the encouragement of friends and family, I decided to see what Gilda's had to offer. This bi-weekly group embraced me, listened to me and supported me all without judgement. The open forum filled with members who could relate and understand soon became my safe place made up people who quickly became a second family. With their encouragement and understanding, I have worked towards finding happiness again as well as being a better mother, grandmother, sister, cousin and friend. As time has passed, my roll in the group has shifted. Now, there are meetings where I am the one helping others deal with their loss and grief. I continue to derive support and friendship from the the group and just like I am not the same person who entered the Clubhouse in 2019, my needs have also changed. Yet, what remains steadfast is the importance of raising money so this amazing organization can continue to help others. Please consider joining and/or donating to my team, Chef Happy, named for my beloved late husband, Jim. I hope to give back to Gilda’s Club a small piece of what Gilda’s has given to me and with your help, I can.
