As we approach “World Suicide Prevention” Week, we will light a candle at 8pm on September 10, 2015 in remembrance of our loved ones who have left us.
May was “Mental Health Awareness” month, Mother’s Day, the 10 year celebration of losing my son Cliff, and the loss of 10 day old Makayla Grace the very next day ♥
May 2015 just about did me in. But we had our 4th Annual “Suicide Prevention/Awareness Walk scheduled along with our “Open House Celebration” for Cliff’s Story, Inc. scheduled for June 6th, and nothing would stop this from happening.
I am here on this earth for a very specific reason, and that is to spread the word of “Suicide Prevention”. My very own son was sacrificed so that others could live♥
Please watch this video I made from the photos/video from our event at “Cliff’s Story”. And share with everyone you know….it is sometimes easier to share a video than it is to speak. Who do you know that is suffering in silence? You may never know…..SHARE the Video ♥

As we kick off the month of May…..it is a busy and very sad month indeed.
Mother’s Day is upon us…..the saddest day of the year for me♥
My first major Speaking engagement in front of a bunch of folks in Selma, CA on May 15th
The Anniversary of my son’s death…..May 25th. This year will mark 10 years since he took his life.
Very busy month indeed….perhaps that is how I will get through May this year better than the past 9 of them after Cliff’s death…..
Sooo, May is Mental Health Awareness Month, and I attended a Youth Forum in Clovis, CA sponsored by the Fresno Survivors of Suicide Loss yesterday May 2nd.
There were 23 youngsters who reached out for help and they were given support and resources! Such a blessing♥
Our keynote speaker was the one and only “Kevin Hines” If you do not know him, you need to get to know him! He is an amazing human being, and his story will absolutely touch you deeply!♥
I was fortunate to meet Stan Collins with Directing Change. He too has a story…one of struggles but he now shares his stories with youth so they can learn to know how to help others who may have thoughts of suicide. He showed several videos of California students who have entered an annual contest over the years, and one boy who placed in this years contest from Kingsburg, CA I will be reaching out to our youth here in Fresno County CA and specifically the South County so we can have more entries next year! Let’s find the talented, and gifted students in our very own back yard and represent the “559” well! Such an amazing cause and such talent!♥
Get involved, spread the word! If you don’t know how to talk to someone with thoughts of suicide, reach out to me and I will get you training on the subject. It isn’t hard….it is actually very simple, and it just may save someones life!♥

We need to talk about Suicide…..thank you Mark Henick for doing just that.
We are all blessed by you, and you will continue to bless others for many years to come. You may not know who they are, but you will make a difference in there lives all the same.
Take a moment to hear Mark’s message……
Please share this post…..you may have someone in your life suffering and you don’t even know it.
Let’s keep the conversation going and make a difference in the lives of those who are struggling.
May you all be blessed ♥
