On October 20th, 2006 I lost my Mama. I have a beautiful daughter, an amazing husband and a loving father – but my grief over the loss of my mother was overwhelming.
Mama didn't want a funeral. Without a memorial service to celebrate her life with friends and family or to help me move through my grief, I felt alone and unable to move forward. That's when I decided to create Valley of Life.
Valley of Life is a free online memorial website that helps families pay tribute to those that they have loved and lost. Sharing memories, pictures and stories with others is such a powerful way to heal. It was through sharing my feelings online that I was able to honor my Mama's life.
Since then, I have used what I've learned from running my business to write two eBooks about grieving and the funeral industry, aimed toward helping people in their greatest time of need.
