#IRunFor My Dad – My Voice of Reason, My Rock

By: Amanda Maxwell

On May 14, 2014 my world came crashing down on me. I lost my voice of reason, my sounding board, my rock, my Dad, George Maxwell. He was my everything and all of a sudden I was lost without him. You see, it was just the two of us for the last 15 years after we lost my Mom on March 18, 1999. There wasn’t any place like Imagine back in 1999. I handled my grief on my own. However, after losing my dad, I knew that I couldn’t go through the grief process solo this time. I am so thankful that I was told about Imagine. I don’t know where I would be today if it weren’t for having my nights of support for the past 7 years. I have met some of the most amazing people in my group-many who have become great friends. Imagine is where we can go to speak openly, freely and unafraid of being judged and the people around you UNDERSTAND!!
