I am pleased to launch a
national campaign to honor grief.
Oaktags memorial pins were originaly created to identify immediate family members during gatherings for funerals and memorial services.
But, families kept wearing them after the funeral, to hold their loved one close.
Now, they are tools we all can use to destigmatize the conversation about
those who are no longer here.
When you see someone wearing this simple oak leaf, go ahead and ask,
"Who does your pin represent?"
You offer them permission to say
their loved one's name; sometimes, for
the first time since the funeral.
