If you have found this blog, then you or a loved one is going through a difficult journey. My name is Simon, and I am a pastor in Sioux City. I have been here at my current post for three years. Before that, I was a grief counselor at a hospital. Through my work with the family and friends of those who have passed on, I have discovered that there is a real need for people to reach out and connect with others in their grief. I will do my best to provide a safe and helpful place for people to come share their feelings and find materials on grieving to ease and comfort.
