The Tidewell Foundation recently dedicated the labyrinth garden at the Tidewell Family Grief Center in Ellenton during a ceremony earlier this month. The completion of the labyrinth garden was catalyzed by a gift of $25,000 from Jonathan Fleece, president and CEO of Tidewell Hospice, and his wife, Amy, in honor of Amy’s mother who died when she and her brother were teenagers.

The Tidewell Family Grief Center in Ellenton is a first-of-its-kind facility in the region providing free holistic grief support for individuals, families and the community, including adult programs as well as Tidewell’s Blue Butterfly Program, the region’s only evidence-based grief program for children ages 5-18 and families who have experienced the loss of a parent, sibling or another significant person in their lives  The outdoor space at the center and other features help create experiences essential to the healing of mind, body and spirit for children and adults after losing a loved one.
