Donate To Keep Free for All

Since 1997, has helped over a million people, from over 100 countries, free of charge. People have forged lifelong friendships, discovered new depths to themselves, and found healing they never thought would occur. Numerous people over the years have said to us that they would never had made it through their grief journeys without the support of others who understand exactly what they are feeling. That support helps them eke through one more minute... an hour... a day. Tears can be shed without judgment and virtual hugs are given freely here at Stories of our loved ones who have passed on before us can be shared and treasured. is a home and a safe haven for those on their grief journeys, and we would like to keep it running for future people in need.

This is where you can help. We have discovered over the last year that works best if people can come to our community with no barriers and find support immediately.  We want to keep the "doors" open for all but server costs and technical help still comes with a fee. If you have a dollar or two you can donate to keep the ongoing expenses of paid, we would be very grateful. We are two moms keeping this site open for all and are happy to do so. Any assistance is appreciated.

The good news is that people are finding and receiving support from all of you. Thank you for being here, and thank you for helping us continue to be here for you and others.
