PUNXSUTAWNEY â€” The grieving process is certainly one that can carry on for many years after the loss of a loved one.
It never really, completely goes away, but through the healing power in the process, one can seek comfort in knowing he or she is not alone.
One local woman, Chris Gigliotti, has learned the healing power of grief. In 2009, she suffered the tragic loss of her beloved son, Adam Travis.
Gigliotti said that after his death, she spent a lot of time struggling and searching for "something" to help her deal with that loss.
On Friday, Verizon presented a check for $5,000 to the Punxsutawney Weather Discovery Center (PWDC) as part of the 2013 Pennsylvania Educational Improvement Tax Credit (EITC) Program.
