I feel like I will never get over this..........I feel so alone..........I feel like I am losing my mind..........I feel like I am in a black hole...........I feel like part of me has died..........My heart aches..........I cannot concentrate or focus..........I feel like I am in a fog..........I feel guilty because..........



The-Empty-Room was originally formed through the desire to make a difference in the lives of those who have realized a parent's worst nightmare… the Loss of a Child. We have expanded our groups to anyone who has lost a loved one.

Although we will never get over our loss, know in your heart we can and will get through our grief. The greatest loss is the loss that is the greatest for you!!!

We come together as a group dedicated to sharing experiences, listening without judging, offering support, compassion, love, understanding, memories, tears, laughter and…. A glimmer of hope for a brighter tomorrow.

"Death leaves a heartache no one can heal, love leaves a memory no one can steal".

(From a Headstone in Ireland)

Hello, I am Marilyn Babuscio and I have learned through my daughter Jill's life and death that "It is not what happens to us in life but what we choose to do with what happens that makes the difference. It either makes us a better stronger person or it destroys us, but it is our choice. I believe in making a difference. I strive to support you through your pain and help you to learn to live again, though be it, in a different way. I am not here to judge. I support and I share. I can offer you hope for a brighter tomorrow. I believe my life purpose is to help others through the grieving process on all levels. I am a support group facilitator and a life coach. I would be honored to be there for you.

I have learned from Dr. Coyne that GRIEF HAS NO TIME FRAME, NO STEPS, OR NO BOUNDARIES. In your heart you know YOU WILL NEVER GET OVER YOUR LOSS, but find comfort in knowing you will get through your grief. You must believe that you have the inner strength inside of you to get through it.

Dr Coyne has written a book titled "You don't have to Like It, But You Do have to Live It". It can be purchased from her website www.barbaracoyne.com.
