Candle Lighting Ceremony-CliffsStory.com  CliffordToday marks the 9th anniversary of when I lost my precious son Cliff♥

We lost him to suicide, and I now reach out to others in hopes that I can save lives in my son’s name.  Cliff is helping others even though his flesh has left this earth.

The only peace I feel is that I know he is now healed from this evil disease that society tends to isolate people from.

We must spread the word of “Suicide Prevention Awareness“, after all, mental illness is a disease just like any other disease, ie cancer, leukemia, diabetes.  We wouldn’t turn our backs on them, so we need to start “talking” and embracing the subject.  That is the only way we will get comfortable in helping those struck with this disease.

Today, in honor of my son, all I ask is that you “smile” at a stranger instead of just walking by “minding your own business”.  Acknowledge people, smile, spread the Love!  There are some people who feel very alone, and as if the world would be better without them!

We are all here for a reason!  Even the precious people who have been stricken with “mental illness”.  They are not contagious, but our smile, our touch, our hearts can be contagious to them! ♥

SAVE a Life Today ♥

Please Reach Out Today!  Show Love Today in memory of my sweet Cliff♥

Jason Matkin ~ Stay With Me

Take a few minutes to watch this musical video performed by Jason Matkin…….

Please know that if you are in a state of depression, if the pain is just too much to bare anymore, YOU matter!  YOU are special, unique and LOVED! ♥

Please reach out for help one last time……if you don’t many hearts will be broken.

I know this because I lost my son May 25th 2005 and there isn’t a day that goes by that I don’t hurt deeply because he is gone.  My life will never be the same without him.  I am NOT better off without him! ♥

11-17-12 International Survivor of Suicide Loss Day

11-17-12 International Survivor of Suicide Loss Day

I just got done watching a Support Webinar, check it out “here”

As the Holiday season begins, we tend to get a bit sad. Even though we don’t do this consciously, it happens every year. When will I get over it? Never!

I have gotten to a place in my life where I am functioning at a much higher capacity, but I will never be the same. The loss of a child cannot be completely healed. I will forever carry this burden with me. There simply isn’t a way to “Get over It”.

I am very grateful to be where I am at today, and I think I have learned how to better manage my grief. So, please don’t feel sorry for me, but instead be happy for me. I am very happy for myself!

Love to you all!

Walk for Suicide Prevention Awareness Saturday June 9th in Reedley, CA

Will you walk with us for Suicide Prevention Awareness on Saturday June 9th in Reedley, CA?

 

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!  😉

Out of the Darkness – Dusk to Dawn

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.

Monday Night Call inspired by Graeme Cowan

Hello everyone!
As you may or may not know, I have a Monday night call that I do each and every week. This is my outreach to you, so if there is ever anything specific you would like to cover, please let me know. I would love to share whatever you might be needing.
On Monday, 12-12-11 @ 7pm PST you can call into my call. I am no longer broadcasting via Blog Talk Radio due to technical difficulties I had last week, but I do post the call onto Blog Talk Radio after so it can be listened to by others.

Here is the call in information….

Call 559-546-1200 Meeting ID# 440-924-308

This information will not change. The call in number and meeting ID will be the same every week.

So, mark your calendars for Monday evening and call in about 5 minutes before the start.

 

This week I will be talking about an author I found by the name of Graeme Cowan. He suffered from severe depression for over 5 years.
I also attended a webinar that he did today on enhancing your wellbeing during the holiday season. I will share information from that webinar as well.
He has also written a book, and I have an excerpt from that book that may give you an idea of whether or not you would like to purchase it.
