Thursday, March 20

As people find one another and offer hope and healing, support groups form in this virtual world. Even if you don’t Tweet or post to Facebook, others are, and you need to understand what is happening online and how it impacts you. Presenter and social media expert Robin Wilson is the owner of The Wilson Edge.

You will be inspired with ways both big and small of how you can make a difference in honor of your loved one's memory.
