Because No Parent Should Go Through Losing a Child Alone
Here at JT's Way
We assist families grieving from the loss of a child through assistance with funeral expenses, emotional support, guidance through the grief process and help them in their healing journey. While paying for funeral expenses we help navigate picking a funeral home, burial plot or cremation services and provide families with grief counseling resources.
JT's Way is a Christ-Centered, Non Profit Organization that assist families grieving from the loss of a child through assistance with funeral expenses, emotional support, guidance through the grief process, and help in their healing journey.

The Lord is close to the brokenhearted; he rescues those whose spirits are crushed. The righteous person faces many troubles, but the Lord comes to the rescue each time.

How to Help a Grieving Friend or Family Member
The family will forever need your prayers. Be present and available, if you can. However, if you cannot, then make sure to do your best to let them feel your presence. You will never know how much this aides in the healing process.
SEND A CARD
Sending a card or gift card are great ways of letting the family know that you are thinking of them. Don’t just say “let us know if you need anything” because they won’t let you know. Also don’t forget extended family members such as grandparents and siblings. They are not only grieving, but also watching their family member grieve as well. It is overwhelming for everybody and showing love will always brighten someone’s day.
For months and years afterwards, they will still need you. It will get harder before it gets better, and it will never be better, just bearable. The first month of a child passing, parents and family members are in a fog and won't remember much. The months to come, they will still need people to love on them. So do just that, love on them.
