SUPPORT AND INFORMATION

Forever Family Foundation provides information that many who are grieving the loss of a loved one find to be helpful. Evidence that we survive our physical deaths can be extremely meaningful to those who are coping with loss. Some people find such information to be a very effective form of "grief therapy." However, the information and services provided by Forever Family Foundation are not meant to take the place of traditional grief therapy for those who need it - the organization does not provide any counseling or therapy services.

"We confront the limitations of the old worldview-the belief that there is nothing but matter, and death is the end of everything we have ever loved and valued. We embrace the new worldview that there is nothing but Life, that birth and death are events in time and space, and that grief is a process that can open us to this new consciousness."
