We were referred to Bo’s Place by a mutual friend. And, uh, we were very grateful for that. I think we were there for about a year and a half or two years. Really made a huge difference about how we handled it. I won’t ... I don’t think we would be how we are today if it wasn’t for that place, at least with our grief.
It was a very healthy experience, and to know that we’re not alone, that we’re not the only ones dealing with that kind of loss. Of course different circumstances, different people, but it felt good not to be alone in that kind of feeling.
We did do volunteering, um, after we were pretty much done with Bo’s Place. But we did do some things while we were there. Um, I participated with, um, making cards with the kids. I helped them make cards for their, uh, loved ones. Christmas cards, holiday cards did help with that. Um, we, uh, volunteered at, uh, at Camp Healing Hearts. Um, I think we passed out food or did minor tasks. But um, yeah, we definitely tried to stay active for when we were, uh, able to. And we're still in contact with those people today.
