SANCTUARY ANYWHERE FOR THOSE IN GRIEF: After our daughter Lilli was killed in 1999, my wife Judy and I started Friends Along the Road to provide sanctuary and caring support for those in grief. We listen, offer resources, and give unconditional positive regard. FAR practices the art of creating Sanctuary Anywhere for those in grief, and teaches it to others. As a living model of this, we hope to establish a physical FAR Sanctuary on land in Colorado. The Roadside Memorial Marker Project is another expression of our work: we are compiling a data-base of roadside memorials at our website.

FAR MOBILE SANCTUARY FOR THOSE IN GRIEF: In the fall of 2012, Judy, our cat Honey, and I will be embarking as the FAR Mobile Sanctuary for Those in Grief, traveling slowly from town to town like an old time medicine show, giving presentations, attending festivals and events, and being a safe places in which people may grieve in their own way.
