Mother's Day is usually an especially happy day for mothers across our nation. But for mothers who have lost children, this time of year can be the saddest time of all. Sheila Rainer of Longview is working to change this time of sadness to a time of joy Each year she hosts a "Special Moms Mother's Day Event" where mothers of lost children share a day of fun, delicious foods, shopping, and most of all remembering their children and sharing them with others. Although the event has now become more of a community affair, Sheila totally bank rolled the event the first years.
Mothers who attend the event, held each year on Mother's Day week, say the Special Moms Mother's Day Event has helped with their grief, brought new understanding friends into their lives, and helped them to go on.
