The Shaun F. Beasley Memorial collection of materials on grief and loss has been provided through funds generously donated in Shaun’s memory. It is hoped that parents and siblings dealing with sudden traumatic loss (along with their teachers, peers, and community), will benefit from the print and ebooks available for both children and adults. Please feel free to ask a librarian for recommendations in selecting material. We’re here to help!

The Shaun Beasley Memorial Fund also has a Facebook page, where you can find the purpose & vision, articles on grief, and memories of Shaun.
