Information is listed to assist you as you seek to understand and cope with the horrific loss(es) of your loved one(s). This information does not replace professional or faith-based counseling.

I do not endorse, promote, or seek supernatural solutions outside of orthodox religion. Indirect links or sublinks, which may connect you to such, are unintended and I encourage you to avoid such temptations.
