Retreat
2005

 

 

The 6th annual Spring Retreat was held the week-end of
April 15th in Pavo, Georgia for the purpose of providing time
away from the 'real' world for members of POS to gather together
and celebrate the lives of our children, family and  friends.

Special guests were those who came from countries
outside of the United States to attend.

Rona Raphael from Scottland
Bob and Lynda Humphrey from England
Rosaleen McCabe from Ireland

This year...

We re-dedicated the willow tree (donated by Faye, mother of Lisa spring 2004),
and places special rocks under it in memory of ALL who died by suicide,

Decorated stepping stones, placed our loved ones names
on them & placed them around the butterfly pavilion,

Sharing circles,

Held our annual Peace Fire Ceremony,

And...

Most important, we shared memories, tears
and hugs with each other, solidifying friendships
which were created via the internet, a world without boundaries.

While you were here, did you see...

A BIG thank you goes to...

Karyl and Ronnie for opening up their home
to the POS and FFOS family for the 6th year in a row.

and to...

 Rosaleen, Anne Toner, and Bunkie for taking the special time
it took to create our "beautiful" retreat booklets
and retreat certificates.

And thank you also to...

all who brought food, gifts or chairs, who shared something, offered
entertainment, provided a listening ear or caring hug, who helped
clean up, who donated to cover catering costs, who helped provide
transportation, and who honored us with your presence.

Until next year!
