Participants have shared the following about their experiences:
"Do not cry because they have died, smile because they have lived." - Yvonne
"The group is a place where I can talk about the loss of my brother and know that I'm understood. It really helps." - Judith
"The group (SoS) provides a supportive network of people who understand and can share in this journey of healing from the loss of a loved one's suicide." - Juanita
"I would be the last person to attend a support group, but here I am...two weeks after my nephew's suicide I needed someone to talk to and thank goodness I found this group. At such a traumatic time in my life it was amazing to find other people who knew exactly the kind of pain that I was going through and they could reassure me, it would get better, please God." - Wanita
