Compassionate Friends help parents suffering loss

by Jolene Toves

Guam - At the Rotary Club of Guam today, Greg Lizama shared his story with members. Lizama lost his child to Sudden Infant Death Syndrome three years ago in California.

When that happened he and his wife Joyce Sosa searched for answers and found the Compassionate Friends organization. A year and a half ago they moved to Guam and founded the local chapter. "We wanted to offer this to the community as it was offered to us and since we started actually I've look forward to every meeting every month it's a way to unwind and let go of what's going on in our lives this grief is probably the hardest grief one would ever come across," he said.

Compassionate Friends offers services to help bereaved parents deal with the loss of a child providing a network of support.  If you have suffered the loss of a child please contact TCF at 988-9662.
