More than inspiration for you, Legacy of the Heart can help you leave lasting inspiration for others for whom you want happiness.

These are small but enriching personal thoughts, born from the experiences of Karen Russell, founder and executive director of National Grief Support Services and From her own losses, and from her years of helping others out of grief, she has focused on important approaches to share.


“My inspiration was my own two boys – this was written with them in mind, if ever I would not be around to share my thoughts about life with them. The essence of my little book is to hopefully inspire thoughts about healing, self-care, living life, and loving life.”
– Karen Russell

Legacy of the Heart also speaks to you, helping to frame the questions you may act on for yourself. The answers must come from your own heart.

Taking those answers, Legacy of the Heart is an idea you can duplicate in leaving behind your own Legacy. It can serve as a set of guideposts as you construct a multimedia Legacy of the Heart here at Grief, or simply a way to help you sort out and express your own mind.

Everyone travels through an individual landscape. Let Legacy of the Heart help you identify the landmarks and interpret the signs you encounter as you find your way through … and reach out to those you love.
