We are a not for profit organization that is dedicated to helping those who are suffering from the loss of a loved one.
The organizations founder is Angela Molden. She started the not for profit organization in 2008 after the death of her grandmother in 2006. She had a hard time dealing with her loss and needed help coping. Unfortunately, at that time there were few resources available to help her. To her knowledge there were no local grief counseling meetings and the online resources were all about the same, they gave you the 5 steps to coping for you to read and from there you were left on your own.
Her grandmother was gone but she was never going to be forgotten. Angela was determined to help others and help herself. She created a blog called Gone But Not Forgotten on WordPress, it was a huge success but it still was not enough, it had to be better, it had to offer the grieving more. The GBNF blog was then turned in to a web site. By turning the blog into a website there would be more freedom to bring in more features to help those that really need it.
GBNF is proud to introduce it new site: WWW.gonebutnotforgotten-gbnf.com . With the new site you are able to make donates to GBNF to help us continue to help the grieving, get information on your local funeral home or cemetery, referrals on books that deal with death and coping, there is information on coping, send flowers & gifts, get in touch with life insurance agents, book hotel and rental cars just in case you have to travel to the funeral, you can get inspiring poems, scriptures and prayers to help you when preparing the funeral service, you can download forms, get the latest death news, announcements and obituaries, we even have a community forum to help those that need a friend to talk to, there is a whole lot more thank you for stopping by.
This is my grandmother and the inspiration for GBNF. She passed away February 23, 2006. Losing her changed my life forever. I no longer have her in the natural but she will forever be in my heart. I wanted a place special for her somewhere I could remember her and talk to her (in a special way of course). I wanted to talk about her all the time, however, the people around me grew tired of me wanting to talk about her. I searched the internet for groups of other suffering people thinking that maybe meeting someone else who was hurting like me would help. There were a few but none like what I have planned for GBNF. That is why Gone But Not Forgotten was established. It is in her memory why this is so important to me.
