Helping people cope with grief after a loved one's traumatic death is Franklin Cook's life purpose. His own father died by suicide in 1978, and two decades later, he began working with bereaved people as a newfound vocation. After 15 years as a peer helper, he became a Certified Professional Coach and developed Personal Grief Coaching, a model for one-on-one telephone support. Franklin believes that each person's unique experience of loss should be honored and respected, and his coaching sessions provide a safe place for grieving people to tell their story -- and to get the help they need.
