participants was kind enough to come to a board meeting
and share his story with our board members. He talked
about the sudden death of his wife and how he now deals
with the sole responsibility of raising his five children,
who were all under the age of seven when their mother died.
In a calm and confident manner, he spoke of how his life
has changed, how his family has adapted and how Mary’s
Place has helped them over the past three years. As he
Although the scars will remain regardless of how much time passes, he has learned to trust, to hope and to laugh again. He has returned to life. This is our hope...for all our children and families.
