Event Speaker: Kelly Farley from The Grieving Dads

We are excited about our speaker for the 2012 Forever in Our Hearts Remembrance Day.

About the Speaker:  Kelly Farley, like many men, was caught up in the rat race of life when he experienced the loss of two babies over an 18-month period. He lost his daughter, Katie, in 2004, and son, Noah, in 2006. During the losses and the years that followed, he felt like he was the only dad that had ever experienced such a loss. He realized that society, for the most part, doesn’t feel comfortable with an openly grieving male. That realization inspired him to write his book Grieving Dads: To the Brink and Back.

In addition to this book, Kelly maintains a blog at and is currently pursuing his M.S. Ed. degree in counseling to continue his mission of helping others through profound life experiences.

Kelly has a passion for helping people “pick up the pieces” after a profound life event. He also works as a personal recovery coach to help people put your life back together.

Kelly was raised in Iowa and currently lives in the suburbs of Chicago. He enjoys spending time with his wife, Christine, and his dog, Buddy.
