  • Dear friends, Truly desiring to let people know that they will be happy again. You see this is what was said to me in February, 1989. Attending my 1st Compassionate Friends meeting, not knowing at all what to expect, the leader opened up with “Believe me, you will be happy again”. I could not talk at that meeting. I would just choke when I opened my mouth. In fact, I couldn’t talk for about a month to anyone. I could get some words out to my 2 girls but not much.
    Here it is 29 years later, finding a need to attend a C.F. meeting and there isn’t one close by. Well, why don’t I look into starting one here in my county. Having a love and tenderness for parents who have buried a child.
    I live in Morehead City, North Carolina. There are 2 chapters here in the Eastern part of the state, but they are too far away. This area needs a chapter to help and love others. (There is a soldier who was brought home here with a flag draped over his casket just 2 weeks ago. Would love to reach out to this family). With the utmost love, Waleen Johnson

  • I am the sibling chapter leader in Washington DC and am excited that the conference will be so close this year. I also want to present a workshop for siblings so I’m excited about that!

  • We would like more information on the Philadelphia conference in July: cost, venue and the like. Many thanks. Ben and Lori Eastman

  • My husband and I are attending the Philadelphia conference and we cannot wait…this will be our third and it brings us closer to our Son. Compassionate Friends saved my life…I was a mess without any directions…with CF, I am not alone I have friends that have been on the same journey as me and my hubby. Looking forward to meeting my old friends from previous conference and new friends in Philly….Terri and Dave Kappel White Bear Lake, MN.
