Both Edmund and his present wife, Pauline, had experienced first-hand the deep pain and loneliness of loosing their respective spouses in a sudden.

As a couple, they have journeyed alongside large numbers of bereaved persons, both on a one-to-one basis and collectively as Grief Support Groups.  Edmund has also taught extensively on the subject.   He often speaks in counselling seminars and conferences locally and abroad, including an invitation to speak at a World Conference of Counsellors in the USA.
