Pam Missimer

Baggins Handbags offers handcrafted bags and other gifts that are stylish, sentimental, and sustainable. Often made from recycled clothing, like wool suits, memory bags from loved one’s clothing are very useful. They also are a way to keep your loved one’s precious memories near to your heart to enjoy every day. I have made priceless gifts using items as small as a single baby slipper. Let me create a memory from a memory for you.

Felicia Watlington

ACE-certified personal trainer 

The benefits of exercise are many – including the release of “feel-good” hormones called endorphins. For individuals grieving the loss of a loved one, this biological benefit, along with an increased sense of control and purpose, can ease the grieving process. While grieving, you may not be motivated or have the know-how to start an exercise program. Felicia can customize an exercise program for an individual’s needs, including ongoing support and coaching.



Wendy Strong

As an end-of-life doula, I have three areas of expertise. One, I work with healthy individuals who want to prepare for their passing while they are still well. Two, I support anyone after they have received a terminal diagnosis and am a companion for them through their journey. Three, I walk with people during the last days, hours, and minutes of their lives to assist in creating the most peaceful passing possible.
