When a child dies, at any age, the family suffers intense pain and may feel hopeless and isolated. Refuge.Church is starting a Compassionate Friends chapter in Fort Myers to provide personal comfort, hope, and support to every family experiencing the death of a son or a daughter, a brother or a sister, or a grandchild, and to help others better assist the grieving family.
The secret of The Compassionate Friends success is simple: As seasoned grievers reach out to the newly bereaved, energy that has been directed inward begins to flow outward and both are helped to heal. We call this bi-directional healing.
The death of a love one causes stress, but the death of a child is particularly severe. We feel the pain of your loss and invite you to share your grief with us.
If you’ve lost a child, and would be willing to be a founding member of Compassionate Friends of Fort Myers, or if you’d like to learn more about the Fort Myers chapter of Compassionate Friends, please contact:
