My Story
My son, Wayne, died by suicide on November 10, 2003. His death has torn my life apart in so many ways, that I cannot even begin to describe it. In the months following Wayne's death, I quickly learned how important it is to reach out to other survivors after suicide. When I first read about the Memory Tree of Lights, I was instantly captured by the heartbreaking yet beautiful memorials to our loved ones. Survivors after suicide seem like such a "neglected" category in grieving—even among professionals. Wayne's death by suicide has left me with a passionate desire to help other survivors in their journey of healing. The Memory Tree of Lights seems to be a perfect way to do just that.
