Providing a circle of support and hope as we remember and celebrate the lives of our children.


Who We Are

Heartfelt Connections fosters life-long relationships founded on support, love, and understanding. Connections unites those who have undergone the same loss. Compassionately guiding parents through loss and life without their child nourishes hope and healing.

The Children's Memorial offers a peaceful, neutral environment for parents and families to come and recall with fondness the many memories our children have given us. Over 300 bricks have been dedicated to beloved children who have gone before their time.

Established in early 2022, For Healing offers care, compassion and coping skills as you begin your grief journey. For Healing is an outreach group that offers support immediately after the loss of a child. Offering resources and support through the most tragic of times.
