Play • 49 min

Have you ever wanted to listen to a renowned storyteller describe their journey of grief to you by way of a series of short stories? Please meet Dr. Joel C. Hunter, CEO and founder of Community Resource Network, in Altamonte Springs Florida. In today’s episode Dr. Hunter takes us through his earliest memories of grief and then shares the story of the loss of his granddaughter and son. Dr. Hunter describes the added pain of double grief and how he and his wife Becky have been living the past 7 years as a tribute to their son and granddaughter. Dr. Hunter finishes this Part I episode with a clear answer on the always difficult “Why” question.  His answer may not be what you expected. 


Marshall and Steve discuss these topics and more with Dr. Hunter as they find common ground in their collective grief journeys from each losing a son too soon. Please don’t miss this special episode of Hope Thru Grief and share it with your friends and family. Be sure to join us next week for Part II of the conversation with Dr. Joel C. Hunter!
