This is OUR story…

We met in the OUR HOUSE Woodland Hills Lobby. Sarah and I were both two years out from losing our spouses and our children were members of the same support group for kids who lost a parent.

Sarah’s daughter Hailey was thirteen years old and my son, Josh was eleven. Though their ages differed, they both share a special bond.

The lobby was always filled with parents and guardians sitting around, some conversing with one another and some sitting quietly. Sarah and I had conversations about all kinds of subjects. During this time of change and uncertainty, one thing was clear, we had a connection. I was ready to ask for her business card, but took six weeks to get the courage to act. Soon after, we met for lunch and a friendship began. We went bike riding a few times with the kids and then Sarah made a very bold move. She asked me to dinner… without the kids. 


Alum Meritt Elliott and Michael Vaccaro created a video featuring our brave and inspiring alumni. The OUR HOUSE team does not expect that anyone will be “done” grieving at the conclusion of an OUR HOUSE group, but will continue a loving connection to the memory of the person who died. We are continually awed and inspired by the resilience of the human spirit.
