Compassionate Friends
Sarasota Florida Chapter
I have been blessed to talk to so many good people in so many walks of life.  You have each expressed interest in learning more about Compassionate Friends and the Remembrance Walk and we've provided event information on our Web site for you to review. Click on the Media link above to view photos from our Annual Walk and Balloon releases at Twin Lakes Park in Sarasota. 

Compassionate Friends is a national organization and I am the chapter leader of the Sarasota chapter.  Attached is the mission statement for Compassionate Friends and the reason we exist.

Under the Events link we've posted future events inviting all from Sarasota and surrounding towns who would like to join us. I hope to see everyone soon and I look forward to hearing from you..

Please call me if you have any questions at all.
