  • Judy Misener

    Judy Misener is known among her friends as an incredible care-giver. This caring aspect of her life has led her to speak in cities throughout Minnesota, Wisconsin and Iowa. Judy speaks about her personal pain in losing her daughter Mickey in the hopes of helping other parents deal with their grief. Judy has also written a book that helps parents deal with their child's death. In her book entitled, COME LET US GRIEVE TOGETHER she talks about the various stages of grieving, as well as personal reflections of how people helped, or hurt her as she grieved her daughter's death. She has used this book while working with many families who have lost children. Judy is also a grandmother of six fantastic grandchildren. She loves spending time with them. They have become a source of great joy for her. She is also known as the "Hat Lady". Judy has over 200 hats and has done the history of hat shows for various women's groups. When you see Judy, you will usually see her wearing one of her hats. Judy loves floral design and growing beautiful flowers. Rainbow colored gardens surround her house and are the focus of her attention in the summer. Hospitality is another word that could be used to describe Judy. She has had plenty of opportunities to treat the guests in her home like family. Her gentle spirit and empathetic listening skills make those who visit feel right at home.

  • Pat Misener

    Pat will be the first to tell you that he was born on St. Patrick's day and thus the reason for his name. He has been a pastor in an evangelical denomination for the past 33 years. This experience has given him many opportunities to share his story of Mickey's death and how God has helped him deal with his grief. It has helped develop his counseling skills as well. One of the things Pat experienced after the death of his daughter was a lack of support from those around him. "After Mickey died people would often ask how Judy and the kids were doing," Pat said. "But it was years after Mickey's death before anyone actually asked me how I was doing." As Pat and Judy have talked with grieving parents, they have found this to be a pattern that most men experience. They have found that women tend to express their grief, while men tend to repress their grief. And that's a recipe for disaster according to Pat. He believes this kind of repression often leads couples who have lost children to grow apart. The divorce rate among couples who have lost children is very high. One study showed that as many as 85% of couples who have lost a child have ended their marriages in divorce. Pat is also an avid golfer and fisherman. He loves spending time with his friends on the course. He admits that his golf game can be summed up in one word: "hacker". He's found much better results in the fishing end of things. Like Judy, Pat has written a book about his feelings while going, through Mickey's hospitalization and death. In his book entitled, I WISH I COULD HAVE TOLD YOU, he writes vignettes about his interaction with family, doctors, and nurses. The book was his method of expressing his grief, as well as thanking those who supported him during the dark days of Mickey's hospitalization.
