I write sometimes about emotions: anger, frustration or griefPosted: May 14, 2008
In this case a family has taken their grief over the loss of a mountain climbing son and created an organization to assist in finding lost climbers. The Jon Francis Foundation was set up to help families search for missing loved ones.
Jon Francis was a 24 year old climber who was missing for a year on an Idahomountain.
Jon’s father is also writing a book detailing the year long search for his son.
In all the family has undertaken a lot of work to help others they do not know. It has very real and well founded goals of helping others. All of the work is driven over the loss of a loved one. Always remember when you are dealing in this situation you are dealing with more emotion than many people can deal with. This emotion does not fade like most, in some cases it may continue to build.
In this case it has resulted in helping others who may be in the same terrible situation.
