    Sibling Loss: The Forgotten Grievers

    Sibling Loss: The Forgotten Grievers

    In this episode Kelly and Jeffrey are joined by Jordan Kilber and Jess Paschke, who lost their sister Jenna suddenly to a brain tumor. It is beautiful how they talk so lovingly about Jenna. They give us helpful and practical suggestions on how to support someone who has lost a sibling.


    We know that often this type of loss isn’t honored as it should be. We are releasing this episode in November as it is Sibling Grief Awareness Month. Jordan and Jess welcome listeners to email them if they'd like to talk about sibling loss and other resources available to help.


    Thank you Jordan & Jess!

    Our Loved One‘s Belongings

    In this episode Jeffrey and Kelly have a non-threatening, honest conversation about how to handle the possessions of our loved ones after a death. These are tender times that require us to assess each situation case-by-case. There are no hard and fast rules about timelines and what precisely to do. As often is the case, there are many things, emotions and feelings to consider. Nevertheless, taking time to evaluate how you feel will help empower you to make the best decision to honor your needs and the life of your loved one. Take a listen!

    Dating After Loss

    In this episode Jeffrey and Kelly talk about what to consider when dating after a loss such as a death, divorce or breakup.


    There is not necessarily a right or wrong way to date -- or a timeline for deciding when to start dating again. Kelly shares her years of stories from others who have taken the risk to date.


    For those who are widowed, groups like Soaring Spirits International may offer some needed support, especially in times of isolation.


    Thank you all for joining us for this important conversation!
