To the family of, Adam James Gilford,
With our most deepest sympathy in the loss of your loved one. We lost our 22 year old son, Joshua David, in 2007. Our hearts broke when we saw your, Adam James', obituary. You are in our thoughts & in our prayers. We are in a group called, The Compassionate Friends, it is for families to offer friendship, understanding, & hope to them in their bereavement. We welcome parent's, siblings, & grandparent's grieving the loss of a child, sibling, or grandchild of any age, & from any cause. At the meetings we share our experiences resulting from our child's death, & how we deal with those experiences. The chance to talk, share, & listen is so important in the grieving process. If you ever are interested in attending, there is no time frame in which to start coming. Come when you think you are ready to meet others who understand how you feel. There is a chapter in Fort Wayne that meets on the First Tuesday of each month at 7:30pm, with the exception of July when there is a Balloon Release & December a Candle Light Service. Meeting address: First Presbyterian Church, 300 W. Wayne St. Room 303. There is also a chapter in Columbia City, IN & in Van Wert, OH. For any further information at ~ & for chapter location & time.
