    For 20+ years I have been learning to live life
    with the death of my
    18-month-old daughter Erin in 1990,
    my 43-year-old wife Trici in 1999,
    and my 13-year-old son Rory in 2005.  

    During that time,
    I discovered a NEW WAY to do grief; 
    a way rooted in hope that offers you
    the promise of a new, full, joy-filled life.

    Please explore this site and discover the tools I have created for you.
    Use these tools to heal, create,
    and live the life you were born to live,
    not in spite of the fact that someone you love has died,
    but because someone you love has died.

    To work with me one-on-one ~ in person if you are in the Rockford, Illinois area or via Skype, FaceTime or Facebook Chat if you are anywhere else in the world ~ email me at tomzuba@aol.com.
