ACCESS is a necessity. We are learning through these tragedies that providing emotional support to the families and their loved ones is such an important component of the grief process. There is something unique and touching at any stage of grief whether it is a day after the crash, 6 months after the crash, or 9 years after the crash. I will always be thankful for the opportunity to connect with others who have gone through similar experiences. The airlines should all get involved with ACCESS because they are not able to offer the insight and sensitivity that a mentor from ACCESS can. Being a part of ACCESS and helping another person who is going through a similar situation to the one that I went through is a privilege.
