Peggy Green

Panel: HR Challenges & Transitions

Thee Grief Specialist

Highlands Ranch, CO

The loss of a child is as deep as it gets. Grief is deep and aching when they are no longer with us. You may feel there is no consolation, not even believing that you will see them again removes the pain that your child is gone. I understand. I have been through all of this and more.

In my first loss in 1991, my only support came from my mother and sister. My second loss in 2018 was much different. In the time span of 27 years, I acquired many resources and tools that equipped me much better than the first time and navigate my loss. They were things I wish I knew the first time. I knew that others could learn from my experience. No one should have to walk this path alone.
