Expressions of Sympathy™
Here are some places on the Internet that we would like to share with you:
The Funeral Service Foundation is the charitable voice representing the care, compassion and generosity of the funeral service community.
Hospice of Hope is a nonprofit, community based organization serving terminally ill children, adults and their families. Classified as a rural hospice, Hospice of Hope covers more than 3800 square miles in Bracken, Fleming, Lewis, Mason, Pendleton and Robertson Counties in Northern Kentucky and Adams, Brown, Clermont, Highland and Pike Counties in Southern Ohio.
Fernside, an affiliate of Hospice of Cincinnati, was founded in 1986 in Cincinnati, Ohio, and is a non-profit, non-denominational organization serving grieving children and their families. At Fernside, we know that the grieving child has the capacity to rebuild, so we gently encourage sharing of stories, feelings and memories with trusted friends, honoring each one's search for a new beginning.
Nancy G. Brinker promised her dying sister, Susan G. Komen, that she would do everything in her power to end breast cancer forever.
In 1982, that promise became Susan G. Komen for the Cure and launched the global breast cancer movement. Today, Komen for the Cure is the world's largest grassroots network of breast cancer survivors and activists fighting to save lives, empower people, ensure quality care for all and energize science to find the cures. Thanks to events like the Komen Race for the Cure, we have invested nearly $1 billion to fulfill our promise, becoming the largest source of nonprofit funds dedicated to the fight against breast cancer in the world.
In January, 2008, Brown County became a part of the Greater Cincinnati Affiliate service area, bringing much needed services to this area like the Mobile Mammography Unit, as well as educational programs to area high schools.
Jennifer Cahall, wife of Ken, is a breast cancer survivor as well as former member of the Board of Directors of the Greater Cincinnati affiliate,
a charter member of the Public Policy and Advocacy Committee and the Brown County Representative.

Thomas Lynch, 58, is a writer and a poet. He's also a funeral director in a small town in central Michigan where he and his family have cared for the dead -- and the living -- for three generations. For the first time, Lynch agreed to allow cameras inside Lynch & Sons, giving FRONTLINE producers Miri Navasky and Karen O'Connor rare, behind-the-scenes access -- from funeral arrangements to the embalming room -- to the Lynches' world for this film, The Undertaking.
For Lynch and his family, their business has always been about more than just caring for the dead. "What I've written is that while the dead don't care, the dead matter," Lynch explains. "The dead matter to the living. In accompanying the dead, getting them where they need to go, we get where we need to be -- to the edge of that oblivion and then returned to life with the certain knowledge that life has changed."

The World War II Memorial honors the 16 million who served in the armed forces of the United States, the 400,000+ who died and all who supported the war effort at home. Symbolic of the defining event of the 20th Century, the memorial is a monument to the spirit, sacrifice, and commitment of the American people. The Second World War is the only 20th Century event commemorated on the National Mall’s central axis.
