Greetings Healing Hearts friends!
The following is an update of “things” that have happened regarding The Bobby Resciniti Healing Hearts Foundation, some of our upcoming events and other great news!
We recently hired a webmaster to give our website a complete makeover. His name is Walter Quintero and he has done a great job. We have a whole new look but kept the wonderful and healing songs by Alan Pederson, pictures, past events, healing resources and our course – our Angels.
Regarding Alan Pederson, he is a singer, songwriter, public speaker, bereaved Dad and good friend. Alan and his wife Denise, whom also is a bereaved parent host grief workshops or like I like to call them “Healing Workshops” throughout the United Sates called “Angels Across The USA”. They are a big part of our foundation. To learn more about Alan and Denise visit their website at Angels Across The USA
The Bobby Resciniti Healing Hearts Foundation will be hosting our third one day workshop for the Bereaved. Alan Pederson and Mitch Carmody will be heading up this up. It is designed specifically for the bereaved – not just parents but anyone that losses a loved one. The date will be Saturday, November 12th, 2011. It will be held in the south Palm Beach County area. People come from Miami, Naples and Broward! For more information, please contact Denise Pederson – firstname.lastname@example.org
Bobby’s Place is open and the Healing has begun! We are hosting support groups for parents that suffer the tragedy of losing a child and sibling support groups. All support groups are facilitated by an awesome grief therapist, Tricia Tran. The meetings are held the first and third Wednesday of every month. We are close to starting our second parent support group and our first sibling support group. The location is just off the Sawgrass Expressway in Coral Springs, Fl. The address is 11764 W Sample Rd. #105 – Coral Springs, FL 33065. For more information you may contact Tricia Tran or Bob Resciniti
Our friend, Mitch Carmody gave our foundation a very, very special gift. Some of his finest works of art are called – The 20 Faces of Grief. They now adorn the walls of Bobby’s Place. The pencil drawings are his interpretation and representation of the many emotional components of his bereavement journey. Mitch is a bereaved Dad for 24 years now. He lost his son Kelly Carmody at the age of nine. Kelly James Carmody died in 1987 of a malignant brain tumor. Since that day Mitch, has dedicated his life to serving the bereaved. Additionally, Mitch is a very talented and sought after keynote speaker that also does interruptive signing to music, an accomplished writer & hosts healing workshops with Alan Pederson throughout the USA. Mitch is a great friend and above all else – a good human being. Please visit Mitch’s beautiful, enlightening and powerful website – Heartlight Studios
See photos of the Twenty Faces of Grief – 12 on one wall and 8 on another….amazing pieces of art that depict the many faces of pain, grief and anguish.
Michelle Morse is an accomplished artist that specializes in murals. Her beautiful masterpieces appear throughout the Broward County school system and she is on the approved vendor list of North Broward Hospital District. Michelle painted several murals for Bobby’s Place. She created three different works of art. The first Mural is called, The Tree of Life, it encompasses three walls and has close to 1,000 hand painted leaves and has over 30 hand painted butterflies, which are sprinkled throughout the tree. The Parent Healing support room has a beautiful garden, arbor topped with a couple of Angels and of course, she painted plenty of colorful butterflies throughout the room. The sibling room has a beautiful & powerful Angel (picked out by Bobby’s sister – Michelle). To learn more about Michelle Morse – please go to her website – Michelle Morse – Muralist – Illustrator – Fine Artist – She is a remarkable person and does incredible work! I am attaching a few pictures that do not do her work justice.
