Saying Goodbye Without a Funeral

Angela Melvin conducting a group session via video chat.

One way social distancing guidelines are affecting people is not being able to be with someone when they pass, and not being able to hold memorials or funerals right now. Our guest is Angela Melvin, founder and CEO of Valerie’s House in Fort Myers. Its mission is to help children and families work through the loss of a loved one.  She joined us via Skype to talk about how social distancing is changing how they fulfill that mission.
