How a Grieving Wife Started a Suicide Loss Survivors Group in Eagle County
After losing her husband, Kenny, to suicide, it became Kris Miller’s passion to create the Suicide Loss Survivors Group. This group now has backing from Gracious Savior Church and SpeakUp ReachOut, a community partner of Vail Health’s Eagle Valley Behavioral Health. It is in its sophomore iteration now.
Kris continues to receive training and guidance to become a valuable member of our grieving community, to help others that are helpless, during a time that is unfathomable to most. Grieving Kenny is never-ending; her ability to help others is a way to honor the person who gave so much joy to everyone he met. This group is her love letter to him. This group will be part of his legacy.
Their next five-week group begins Monday, Jan. 10, 2022. It will run for five consecutive Mondays from 5-6:30 p.m. at Gracious Savior Church, and online. More information will be available as we approach the New Year.
