First Hand Experience with Grief & Loss.

You may pour out your heart to me and be able to count on getting a patient, non-judgmental ear hearing your every concern.

You are welcome to share your issues with me resting assured that you will not be judged and that I will actively listen to you as you need. Through two careers I have had people share things with me that they never shared with anyone else and I STILL treated them without judging them at any time. As a matter of fact I became close friends with many of these same people with which I interacted I simply because, in their words and not mine, because I listened to them without judging them.

Do you want someone to just listen to you as you share your concerns but are concerned that you will be looked down upon? Being looked down upon is not gonna happen when you share your issues with me. Over my life I have had people tell me some things that would make most people run for the hills but I never even flinched. Because I still treated them as a fallible human being that WE ALL ARE, those very same people invited me to baby showers, weddings, Super Bowl parties, funerals, you name it. Almost without fail those people thanked me for handling them in the kind manner in which I try to treat everyone and I am quite proud of that.

You are very unlikely to shock me with your issues and you DEFINITELY will not be viewed negatively by me. You may count on me to listen and chime in as is warranted.

As someone who has suffered the loss of an extremely close sibling via murder, both parents with whom I adored, one of which I was literally holding his hand when he died, the loss of my two favorite aunts less than a year apart, a wife, my Mom's best friend/second mother and a granddaughter you would be sharing with someone with first-hand experience with grief and loss.

By the way, the murder of my brother, whose autopsy I witnessed in a foreign country, the loss of my Father and a divorce all occurred within an eighteen-month span, so I know cumulative losses in a relatively short period of time well. If you are looking for someone that can relate to grief and loss, I definitely can, so please know that you may count on me to be there for you.

If you wish to ask someone with first-hand experience with trauma how he dealt with it please know that I have had two sports-related concussions, been involved in three automobile accidents and was rendered unconscious after my motorcycle broad-sided a car, you are welcome to talk with me.

You are not alone as long as I am around to be there for you. Just reach out to me and we can go from there. You will feel better, I'm sure.
