This special day began in 1997 by the organization CompassionateFriends.org We will begin our program below once you have lit your candle and go until 8pm. This starts in New Zealand I believe and goes across the globe worldwide. What a special way to remember our children.

Here is the deal…..as you know, my husband Tony and I were supposed to be in San Francisco this weekend to walk in memory of my son Cliff. Well, since we have not raised the minimum $1,000 per person, we cannot attend and walk unless we pledge to give that amount sometime in the near future. Unfortunately that is just not possible right now. So, we will be walking in Reedley Saturday instead!
Please join us at the Reedley Cemetery at the entrance closest to the office. ( 2185 S. Reed Ave., Reedley, CA) We will be 3/4 of the way down where my son Cliff is buried. We will meet at 5:30pm and then we will walk from the cemetary down and through Reedley until dusk where we will meet again at the cemetary and share the moment with eachother and just talk about the loved ones we miss due to suicide.
I hope to see you there as we bring awareness to suicide.
Please email me with any questions you might have, and please pass the word along so anyone who would like to join us can!

Today, May 25th 2012 marks the 7 year anniversary of losing my son Cliff to Suicide. I will be walking in San Francisco on June 9th dusk to dawn….please take a moment to watch this short video as I share this day with you!
Please take the time to watch both of these videos, and share! We never know who may be suffering in silence.
I will be walking in memory of my son Cliff in San Francisco June 9th. Please consider making a donation to support me and the awareness of suicide prevention.

My husband and I will be walking in memory of my son Clifford E. Widmer, III We both need to raise a minimum of $1,000 I went to the team site and see that many teams have raised Huge amounts of money. This is our first year, so I am not going to dwell on the fact that we have not raised a ton of money, instead i will embrace the journey and reflection on my sons life as we raise awareness of suicide prevention.
Please visit our donation page and consider making a donation! Next year I hope to have our non-profit in place and will raise much more money for the cause.
