 "I first learned about The RescYou Group when we lost our son Thomas Allen Cestia to a hot car accident on June 14, 2021. TRG was just being established and Reecie was one of the first people to reach out and help us with the healing process. Since 2021, I have become more involved with the TRG group through helping start and facilitate the men’s support group. I have also witnessed first-hand the counseling sessions that are available through the organization for both parents and children of bereaved families. The organization has been a constant support system that has been there for long term help to our family as well as many other families.  I am truly honored and blessed to serve on the board for TRG and look forward to helping other bereaved families in the future."
