Terri Hemmert: “The recent suicide of Dave Duerson has been a blow to his friends, former team mates, and fans of Dave and the Chicago Bears. Dealing with death, suicide, illness, accident…expected or not…is always a traumatic, life changing event. Our culture seems to be in denial of grief, and how it can be a healthy and necessary part of life and loving. Last week I spoke with Stefanie T. Norris, founder and Executive Director of Willow House, an organization that offers help in many ways for people in the Chicago area dealing with grief. It’s an informative and life affirming conversation. Hope it can be of help.”
“The most valuable thing I learned from Willow House group is that I am not alone and there is hope.”
