Although we have no bereavement degrees, we have lost two children,
my husband lost his brother, and my sister, mother, and neice lost their husbands.
We worked with and led our local chapter of
The Compassionate Friends (for bereaved parents and their families)
for many years after the organization helped us.
Deb edited newsletters, wrote articles,
and was the education chair of the 2005 Annual TCF Conference.
Peter help Deb in all of her TCF activities.
We were meeting leaders at the local level
and workshop leaders at the national level.
We are very grateful to The Compassionate Friends.

At the same time, Deb lead a group of writers.
