This month Pouches learned about a very important resource for families who have lost loved ones to sudden tragedy, an organization called LLOST.
The foundation has helped 44 hospitals in 22 states through their Treasured Memories program. The program sends nurses to bereavement training, and provides or supplements the $55 memory boxes that include clothes, booties, handknot blankets, pictures, foot prints, hand prints, clipped hair and other mementos.
