4: Sharon Delaney McCloud on Her Baby Daughter Macie, 10/1/04-8/5/05

On this podcast from Renaissance Funeral Home in Raleigh North Carolina, we go beyond the obituary to get a better sense of who those people were who have passed on. What were some of the stories that define them?  We’ll hear from the people who loved them because they are so much more than a one-page obituary.

On today’s episode, Sharon Delaney McCloud shares her baby daughter Macie’s story, who tragically passed away from leukemia.

Sharon’s grief journey started with anger, and it wasn’t until she found help with a group called Compassionate Friends that she was able to channel that energy into something much more positive to the community. And Sharon wants to help even more than she already has, and we talk about what she’s working on later in the conversation.

You’ll also hear about how Macie’s family has been so blessed since her passing, it’s like there’s an angel looking down on them from heaven.

Organizations Sharon mentions on the show: Compassionate Friends St. Baldrick’s Foundation Me Fine Foundation Leukemia and Lymphoma Society
