Shelter Their Stories

Dear Friend,

If you are visiting this site, you may be grieving for someone you have lost to Covid-19. Each person’s needs are different and we all mourn in varied ways, but there is one aspect of mourning that is universal: To heal, we must remember, and when we do, what happens to these memories matters.

A time-honored way to honor the deceased is by writing about them. The process helps you to strengthen meaningful ongoing relationships with people you have lost, and creates connections which transcend death. Writing down specific stories and details is necessary and comforting.

If you want to honor a lost loved one or friend through writing, the WhoWeLostKY project is here to help. We invite you to take a look at our “Writing Toolbox,” full of tips to help spark and preserve memories. Our website is a safe space, free from virus politics. All posts are reviewed before being posted and no comments are allowed, so the sometimes toxic world of social media is completely avoided. WhoWeLostKY is a shelter for all our stories. 

We believe in honoring the mourner as well as the mourned. So, let’s start healing. Let’s start writing.
