“I have been involved with Making Choices Michigan almost as long as I have been living in Grand Rapids. I met Carol in the Grand Rapids Interfaith group. I really enjoy helping others think through the options that will help their loved ones find comfort in knowing that they are making decisions with peace. Every opportunity I have to take part in a conversation, I feel my heart is opened a little deeper.”
