Alan Pedersen is a bereaved father, nationally recognized inspirational speaker on grief and loss, award winning singer/songwriter, and successful recording artist. He will be performing at Lakeview Park in Port Clinton at The Compassionate Friends’ Children’s Memorial on Sunday, May 5, at 2 p.m.
In August of 2001 Alan’s only daughter Ashley was killed in an automobile accident in Colorado. This tragedy took his life in a direction he never imagined. His pain and journey toward finding joy again have been the subject matter for four highly acclaimed CD’s of original songs.
As an in-demand keynote speaker and workshop presenter, Alan has been featured at international, national, and regional conferences. His music is popular with bereaved people around the world and is used at candle lighting services, balloon and butterfly releases, and by hundreds of professionals and organizations as a healing tool for the bereaved.
Alan’s message is simple, “We were put on this earth to love them for as long as WE live… not for as long as THEY lived.” He believes that healing comes slow, but does come as we reach out to others who share this journey and offer our hand to help.
The public is invited to share an afternoon of music, hope, and healing at this free event. For more information, contact Roseann Hickman 419-308-4690.
