Grieving Out Loud with Angela Kennecke

Mothers Healing Garden

Their shared grief over the loss of their children brought Carol Baum and Jeannie Ammon together. Both women lost their sons at a young age. Carol’s son Jeremy completed suicide after battling meth addiction in 1999. Jeannie’s son Wyatt died at the age of 24 in 2005 in a freak accident while overseas.
Carol and Jeannie joined forces to help others by creating the Mothers Healing Garden, in Dell Rapids, SD. At the center of the garden is a labyrinth. The Mothers Healing Garden has now been used as a model across the country and Carol and Jeannie say their friendship has also been essential to their own healing.
