Blankenship Family

July 20, 2013, our lives changed and not for the better, but for the worse. We lost the most important person in our life, our dad. Coming home from the hospital knowing that the one person you want to come home with you, isn’t coming was the hardest. Knowing you won’t see that person anymore makes you want to fall off the face of the Earth. When we heard of Lost and Found, I didn’t think I needed it and I was fine. My first night I resisted it. My Mom told me I only had to go once, and if I didn’t think it was helpful I wouldn’t have to go again. I went and realized I wasn’t fine, I needed it . . . we all needed it. Lost and Found has helped so much. We know grief is never- ending, but we can also smile and laugh as we move forward with life.
