Share Your Story

Your experiences are meaningful to Cornerstone… our staff, our volunteers, and the thousands of clients we serve each year. Thank you also for validating the work we do by writing your grief journey for the Share Your Story Program. If we choose to use your story in one of our publications, we will call you to get your permission first, in addition to the signed release that is included below. 

These are your stories, chosen from your real-life experiences of grief and hope. These powerful stories have been sent to us personally by past Cornerstone of Hope clients, who are willing to share their experience of loss to try and help other people in the same situation. Expressing your story in this way can help lift the burden off your own shoulders, and also make other people feel less isolated in their own grief. Please send us your story, as it can help so many others find hope again. Know that we value your time and effort and appreciate your choice to memorialize your loved one through this writing experience. Again, thank you.

Cornerstone of Hope’s Share Your Story Program enables you to share your real personal grief journey.  The powerful stories below have been sent to us personally by past Cornerstone of Hope clients who are willing to share their grief journey to help other people in the same situation.
