Chudney’s Story About her Mom

Chudney and her Mother

Alumni Wisdom by Chudney

My name is Chudney and I am 23 years old. My mom died when I was 14 years old. When she died I felt abandoned. I chose a shopping tradition to honor my mom because we loved shopping together and having “girl talk”. Family Lives On supported me and my tradition for 4 years. My tradition made me feel acknowledged and helped me to connect with the grieving emotions I was dealing with by doing something meaningful. I enjoyed the tradition because what girl doesn’t love to shop? This continues to be a healing activity for me to this day. THANK YOU Family Lives On.
