"Siblings are like witnesses to your life’s history. Brothers and sisters are part of your past, present and future. In the early days of my grief, my brain struggled to catch up with what my heart already knew….Then I found TAPS. It was like finding a missing piece to the puzzle. The biggest comfort TAPS gave me was the knowledge that there were others in my position." – Elizabeth Doherty, TAPS Sibling Survivor

Intentions Notes  

Intention Setting
By Kelly Griffith, Surviving sister of Maj. Samuel Griffith

TAPS Magazine | The knock at the door came, and my world stopped. But within weeks I realized the world was still spinning for others. And they couldn't understand why mine wasn't. They wanted to know when my world would be in order again. They didn't realize that everything-including my priorities-had changed. I found myself feeling as if all the life goals I had before my brother died weren't worth much anymore. And I didn't know how to replace them. How could I ever plan for a future without him here to motivate me in the tough moments and help me celebrate my victories? We were supposed to grow old together. How could I grow at all now?
