After losing our sweet little Ellie, we were in shock. Our friends and family had no experience with the tragedy we faced. The sudden loss of a young child doesn’t occur very often in any one place, so there were few people to talk to who had lived through something like this. When I was in the pit of my despair, several people reached out to me and let me know that I was not alone.

I needed to know that others had survived this. I wasn’t sure I could. I wasn’t sure my family could.

A kind gentleman called me and told me his story of losing his dear son in a tragic accident several years before. He listened to me and sat in my pain with me. He gave me the gift of hope that we could survive. He was a gift that I needed at the moment that he called.

One of my wife’s friends from high school also let us know that she was there for us. She had lost her son and husband recently and suffered terrible injuries as well. Her willingness to share in our pain, in the middle of hers, gave us hope too.

We receive many requests for connections to others with similar losses at Ellie’s Way. It’s been quite overwhelming. So, we’ve created a group on Facebook where we can connect and share our stories. It’s a place where you can interact as much or little as you like.

Here’s what you will find in our group:

  • Encouragement and love!
  • Over 9,200 members and growing.
  • Question of the Day with many comments and discussion.
  • Remembering Special Days program for heavenly birthdays and angelversaries.
  • Daily caption contest
  • “Share Your Memories” events.
