  • Loss of a Friend
    The death of a close friend may be considered by others as less significant than that of a family member, and bereaved friends may feel completely left out of the grieving process, as if they don’t have a legitimate right to grieve, or permission to mourn their loss. Yet for many of us, “ friend grief” can be more painful and troubling than the death of a relative.

  • Loss of a Sibling or Twin
    Special issues arise when our brother or sister dies, no matter how old we are at the time. We may feel as if part of our own identity is lost. We may blame ourselves for our sibling’s death, or even feel guilty for being the surviving child. We may suddenly feel totally alone in our responsibilities toward our parents as they grow older – or feel somehow obligated to set aside our own grief for our parents’ sake, as well as for the other family members our sibling has left behind. In this forum we are not alone; we can connect with others who've endured this special kind of loss.

  • Loss caused by Suicide
    Grief is a normal response to losing someone important to us. When someone dies by suicide, those bereaved often experience a very complicated form of grief caused by a combination of sudden shock, unanswered questions of ‘Why?’ and feelings of ‘What could I have done?’. They may experience a range of emotions highlighting the dramatic personal effect suicide can have and the important but difficult task of helping someone bereaved by suicide.

    In loving memory of this very special young man. Please join us all in wishing a heavenly birthday to Al. LaPlante.

    Al always struggled throughout his life to find happiness while adapting to autism and other challenges he had in his life. He was always reaching for new goals to meet and he always reached for glazed donuts for his birthday.

    So on his birthday have a GUILT FREE glaze donut or other treat if donuts are not your thing... BUT, to make it guilt free you have to say HAPPY BIRTHDAY AL when you eat it, that's it.....

    Please share this with everyone! family and friends post a selfie photo of yourself having GUILT FREE glaze donut or other treat if donuts are not your thing… wishing Al a HAPPY BIRTHDAY when you eat it. Or can just leave a comment wishing Al a HAPPY BIRTHDAY also saying what you had have also.

    What other reason good reason to have a treat on Nov. 29th.

    Help keep Al's memory alive. Al's family and friends would like to see this go worldwide. You do not have to have known Al to participate and to wish this special man Alan a HAPPY BIRTHDAY, everyone is welcome, the more the merrier.
