How We Began

We began with a vision to change how children experience funerals.

Many children, upon seeing a space with art materials, immediately seize on the opportunity to interact with the child life specialist and create their own tributes. It is in this safe space that children have asked questions about the deceased such as, “Is she wearing shoes?” “What happens when this is over?” and “Where does his body go?” Many children shared their memories and messages for their loved ones. One child took the opportunity to share her favorite memories of her sister and worked with the child life specialist to create multiple purple flowers to be included in the casket with her.
