Camp Hope



some people get very sick and then they die some people die because something unexpected and tragic after a person dies there is usually a ceremony called a funeral has anyone been to a funeral I mean I've been to Demi's Church someone sits at a church one of the managers outside yeah so we've all experienced that we know what that looks like but I didn't – one let's put my mom but my mom and dad at the funeral which a lot of us have been to violent people who knew that person can gather together to say goodbye we probably have all done that right they may bring flowers tell stories or maybe they say a poem it can be hard to say goodbye someone we love it's normal to miss them very much we all miss the people that are not here with us and that's okay when someone you love dies it can feel as if your heart has been torn in two it can feel as if a part of you is missing does anybody still feel like that cheyanne said she feels like that these feelings can take a long time to get over you may feel lots of different sad feelings before you finally begin to feel like yourself again does anybody have sad days yeah sometimes we have happy days too right okay I'm really sorry I just don't know what else to say but it's good to have friends isn't it help us get through that there's a lot that we don't know about that every culture has different beliefs about what happens after a person dies most cultures also share some beliefs it's like the idea when a person dies their soul the part of them that made them special takes a journey to join the souls of others people who have passed away some people even after someone you know or love dies life goes on the things you learn from that person stay inside of you and become a part of you we all feel that like we keep that person special in our heart as time goes on you will realize that no one is completely gone as long as you can remember the one you lost we all have special memories that those people don't we but you remember about me being pregnant with them right yeah well I have compassion for children especially ones has had a recent death in their families and I just want to be part of their day for they can have fun and try to forget about their sorrows and I enjoy helping them and seeing that they have a good time can't hope is about children who have lost someone in their family and it's from age of six to twelve so they can go out and we have a good time and have fun and try to forget their problems are they actually Chris Scott and myself were doing a support group over at st. Luke's in or canton the nursing home and she and I had both come from another hospice service that did a week-long camp open we thought let's bring that here to all men let's you know reach our kids here and so we started to develop that got approval through Jody and we went ahead and started knowing that the kids also need support not just adults we have rock painting and we had help me cornhole we did did the music music therapy which is huge tattoos yes up headings ooh we're a local company from harmful came down and she brought rubbish bunnies little chickens a big rooster something like that yes if the children some of them have never been able to touch before we did a mask which was probably the very most important one of the most importance and we did a plain white mask and on the outside of it they color and decorate how they're feeling today because and then on the inside they write their name and tell me how do you feel about you know losing the your loved one what does that feel like to do does it make you sad angry what are you feeling and they did those and I think that was they touched their heart and they helped them to talk more I think they responded wonderfully I think it gave him a chance to talk about their loved ones but to be here with other children that have also gone through a death of a loved one feel all alone in this process so it was the day of fun but also of remember with the notes that you've written to your loved one so play on the count of three we're going to release a balloon and watch it go to heaven are we ready why [Applause]
