2ND ACT: Rich Beebe

Loss, Grief, and Words
In May 2007, Rich lost his wife Eileen after her three-year battle against colon cancer, leaving him a single parent of their only child, 14-year-old, Meghan. Six years later in December 2013, Meghan was killed in a hit-and-run accident. In the years since, Rich has had to come to terms with the loss of his family and finding a new path forward. Along this journey, he openly wrote about his personal experiences on social media.
In writing about the challenges of grief, Rich has shared, “It is never easy…never easy, this balancing of loss with healing, of grief with acceptance, of pain with endurance, of memories with hope. Then carrying them all forward as lessons shared; and perhaps, in the process, seeking and finding — both with one another and within ourselves — a measure of peace.”
Rich hopes that his experiences, though admittedly painful, will offer the audience a chance to gain insight into how one can face grief and loss and still live a full life, honoring those we have loved and lost.
