Welcome to the third episode tied to the conversation we recorded with Sam and Lauren on August 27th.  If you have not heard the previous conversations tied to this recording date, I hope you will look back and download the previous episodes.

 

At one point in the conversation with Sam and Lauren, I asked if they might share how they handle or process conversation which comes out wrong from people who love and care about them deeply.

 

So many of us don't have the words or know what to say, so I asked them to help know better, so we can do better.

Welcome to the the first podcast with Sam and Lauren since Evan passed away.  Sam and Lauren are the face and voice behind A Copper Penny For Your Thoughts and how incredibly honored we are that they share Evan and their journey with us, even in their grief.

 

Our conversation was heartfelt and emotional.  Lauren and Sam wished to bring the raw and real to their community who love them.  They wished to bring the hard conversation of grief to the table. And, they wished to help others who know and feel this type of heartache, to know they are not alone.  

 

They accomplish these goals beautifully in this conversation.

 

Please know we have broken the conversation into four shorter episodes, but have released them all in the same day, if you would like to listen to the entire conversation without delay.

A Copper Penny For Your Thoughts: Episode 07 - Private Duty Nursing

August 26, 2021

Several weeks prior to Evan's passing away, Lauren had sat down with us to discuss something near and dear to her heart, Evan's Private Duty Nursing.  She shares how the nurses are extensions of their family and how they allow her to wear a mom-hat for Evan when they are there, and not just his care takers. 

 

Our conversation about private duty nursing expanded into the subtopic of TEFRA and Lauren does a beautiful job explaining how TEFRA impacted their life and helps them in so many ways!

A Copper Penny For Your Thoughts: Episode 12 - Experiencing Grief with Family

August 20, 2021

“Grief is the price we pay for love.” - Queen Elizabeth II

 

“Grief is not a disorder, a disease, or a sign of weakness. It is an emotional, physical and spiritual necessity; the price you pay for love. The only cure for grief is to grieve.” – Dr. Earl A. Grollman

 

Having friends and family who you can process the hard with can make all the difference.  This family spoke of and provided us a glimpse into the way in which they process grief together.  This episode is the final release of the conversation we recorded on July 31, 2021.  

 

There may be one or two bonus stories in this podcast as well about the Arnold family, Sibling Love and Support, and Processing Grief!!
