Family Testimonies: I have enjoyed the warm and open feeling of every event I have ever attended there. It is a place where you can share your feelings in a safe environment...a place where you can both laugh and cry while slowly working through the stages of grief. It was good to see my children remembering their father and making things that made them happy. We still have the flower pot that we made sitting on our dining room table. They also loved writing a message to him on the balloon and releasing it. We were at Ted E. Bear Hollow when the moment came that I knew our family would be fine because of the caring, encouragement and support we received there. I have a memory of my children eagerly waiting to tell of their experiences at TEBH after the groups ended. The 15 minute drive home went fast because each child had so much to share and most of the time the conversations were continued inside of our house. The children felt so comfortable to share of their journey in their healing process.
