Grief recovery



Loss affects us all

I need a hope...A new hope. A hope that inspires me to live...

Dr. Nelia Drenth - Social Worker / Maatskaplike Werker

“You have no control over how your story begins or ends. But by now, you should know that all things have an ending. Every spark returns to darkness. Every sound returns to silence. Every flower returns to sleep with the earth. The journey of the sun and moon is predictable. But yours, is your ultimate art.” ― Suzy Kassem, Rise Up and Salute the Sun: The Writings of Suzy Kassem
