Meet Shirley Thiessen
Shirley Thiessen is an author of “The Little Black Funeral Dress – Five Things I Wish I Had Known About Grief”, a speaker and grief coach.
Since 2012 when her 23-year-old son died tragically in a workplace accident, Shirley has experienced a gruelling grief education.
Thanks to caring friends – Hope Heroes – who bravely showed up for Shirley with empathy and shared hope, she discovered a path to resiliency. Because most people feel unsure how to respond to a grieving friend, Shirley is sharing the secrets of Hope Heroes to equip others with caring skills and ideas.
No one should have to grieve alone. Everyone deserves a caring friend, a Hope Hero who activates their superpowers of empathy and compassion.
