Welcome to all those who visit this site in search of information and solace. It is my hope that you find both here. I’d like to take this opportunity to thank the many surviving siblings who have visited this special place. The message board has become a healing space where surviving siblings gather to exchange ideas and offer comfort. I understand that many new friendships have grown out of this unique community of sharing. In addition to the message board, many surviving siblings have chosen to honor their deceased brother or sister through on-line memorials; these tributes are moving, heartfelt reminders of the enduring connection we have to our brothers and sisters.
I’d like to offer a special thanks to all the surviving siblings who have contributed to my book; your personal stories have helped to reinforce my belief that our special type of bereavement needs recognition.
I’d like to also thank those siblings who have taken the time to write to me. Your letters of gratitude and encouragement have meant a great deal to me, both in my personal journey of grief and in my ability to help others. Each story, each unique sibling relationship offers me the opportunity to continue to learn, grow, and to help others.
Finally, I’d like to thank Dori Depretto Radtke and Denis Lynch for their administrative help and support. They are the heart and soul of both the Adult Sibling Grief Facebook page and Adult Sibling Grief website
To all who enter this site, I wish you peace.
