For most, it’s hard to fathom losing a loved one, including a parent. Even for adults, there is no right way to deal with this, no easy way to handle this pain. Even harder is experiencing and learning to absorb a loss of such great magnitude as a child. Josh Hauser knows this. He lost his mother when he was 10 years old.
Josh has suffered a great deal since his mother was senselessly murdered twenty years ago. Yet, he was determined to help lift the spirits of those that have been through the same, and also teach them how to cope with such a great loss. So, Josh created ‘Becky Baskets.’
Each basket contains a bit of hope, healing, and a guide to get through one of the hardest times in your life. So far, Josh has been able to create and donate over 50 baskets honoring his mother, keeping her memory and cause alive. Here is Josh’s story, not just of his mother’s death but also about his survival and grace.
