“Change and loss are natural in the cycle of life. We experience grief and emotional distress with any significant loss. Support from those with experience in dealing with personal loss can help ease the pain and promote healing.” – from the Kara website.
If anyone has additional resources that would help in the grieving process, please forward the information to the Schreiber family or post it on the blog and we will update this page accordingly.

Grief is a difficult thing- you don’t have to do it alone! Bring your laughter, tears, stories, and share how you are doing.
Visit the shrine outside the Common Ground Food Co-op in Urbana, IL. It will be there until 8/6/10. You are invited to bring remembrances or share a message in chalk on the sidewalk. No lit candles, please. Stay as long as you’d like.
