My Why

I was inspired to open Kari Cares to help community members with their grief following the passing of our oldest son, Nicholas, on July 23rd, 2020.

The depression was deep and I just woke up one day (November 4th, 2022) and said, "I can't  live like this forever."

I started thinking about the things I wished I would have had access to, instead of at home all by myself... I wanted to get out, but I didn't necessarily want to go anywhere public where I might run into somebody I knew. That was my anxiety and still is sometimes. 

It was a whole different set of feelings I didn't want everybody to ask me about it, but at the same time, I didn't want them to forget. I just needed somewhere to go where I could feel my feelings and not have to worry about what everybody else was thinking.
