Welcome to our website, please explore . . .
Special anniversaries, holidays, and traditional celebratory days can blind-side us with painful emotions. Please treat "you" as you would a dear friend, and with compassion. This roller-coaster ride of grief can be scary. Permit yourself to express these true feelings, and trust that, one step at a time, this too shall pass. In addition you may be frightened, and somewhat isolated by today's world events. As you work hard to stay safe, we wish you encouragement, love, and hope. Although our book does not speak to the new normal of 2020, we hold out a helping hand for your grief. Life Came to a Standstill is dedicated to every heart impacted by loss. We "get it" that your grief continues to impact you, even as current events complicate your sorrow and stress.
To learn more about our book, including photos, and a chance to read the first paragraph of each chapter please visit under the heading "author & contributing writers."
FYI the photo to your left gives examples of hand-crafted Dragonflies, along with, The Story of the Dragonfly, beginning: "Once in a little pond, in the muddy water under the lily pads, there lived a little water beetle . . ." Barbara, bereaved mom of Nathan, in his honour and memory lovingly crafts these beautiful key chains from parachute silk. She donates them, including this timeless legend. If you have an interest in Barbara's compassionate work, you may contact her at: email@example.com
