Potpourri For $500, Alex

Too busy to form sentences. Will hit highlights. So much happening! Excited. Must share. In no particular order:

1. There is a new website I have to tell you about. This will save so many people from much of the frustration and confusion that follows a death. It will launch in November. It's the ONE place to go, covering everything from how to plan a funeral to travel information for out-of-town relatives, to grief camps for kids, and so much more.

This is an idea whose time has come. Overdue, really. They'll even have space to pay tribute to the person who has died, sharing stories and pictures. I am thrilled to tell you I will be serving as their go-to gal for grief support. They even gave me a title. Wanna hear it? Grief Support Expert. Yep, it's official. I'm an expert.

2. Sick of that picture on the top of this page? Yeah, me too. New one happening tomorrow. Hoping for a good hair day. Stay tuned.

  1. Alicia,

    So glad to hear about this new website--very much needed! Did I miss somewhere what it's called (it's probably right there & I just don't see it!)?

    Happy about your new title! You deserve it w/all the help you've given people! (You also deserve a much better hairdo than the lovely one pictured! Poor woman!)


When someone dies, (other than attending the service), I do this for the family-
