Your Support In Action: Love Follows Us Everywhere
When Aaron’s mom died, we didn’t know what to do. Our son, Lincoln, took it particularly hard. At a time when we were all struggling, the Robertson Bereavement Center team at Hospice of Medina County was there for us. We couldn’t do it alone, and with them on our side, we didn’t have to.
Although his Grandma Harrison had been diagnosed with ovarian cancer before Lincoln was even born – and was receiving treatment throughout much of his life – they always had a special connection.
Shortly after Mom passed, Lincoln struggled to talk about his memories of her. We were especially concerned that he was reluctant to share good feelings. He said he was worried he was always going to be sad because he missed Grandma so much.
From the very first time she met Lincoln, his bereavement counselor JoDee “got” him. She helped him create a memory box for his favorite photos, drawings and thoughts. That project helped him learn to process his feelings. Now he always smiles when he looks through the box. JoDee’s most lasting lesson for Lincoln is one that he reminds us of regularly: “Love follows us everywhere.”
It’s been amazing watching our son heal and grow. We will never be able to thank HMC’s bereavement team enough. We hope you will consider making a gift today to Hospice of Medina County. Your support can help them to continue to help kids like Lincoln.
