Attention: TCF Members

Due to the Covid-19 Pandemic, we will not be meeting at St. Luke's again in May. Instead, we will be posting a video and holding a virtual discussion on Thursday, May 14th at 7pm in our Private Facebook Group - which is separate from our public page.

To Our Newcomers

If deciding if TCF is of help to you or you are attending your first meeting or receiving your first newsletter, we extend our hearts in understanding and regret for the reason you are joining us. It is so difficult to attend your first TCF meeting. Feelings can be overwhelming, but we have all experienced them and know how important it is to take that first step. Please plan to attend two or three meetings before deciding if this is right for you and your family.

TCF Mission Statement

The mission of The Compassionate Friends: When a child dies, at any age, the family suffers intense pain and may feel hopeless and isolated. The Compassionate Friends provides highly personal comfort, hope, and support to every family experiencing the death of a son or a daughter, a brother or a sister, or a grandchild, and helps others better assist the grieving family.

Love Gifts

In this monthly newsletter, you are able to send a photo and short memory of your child that will be featured here in our digital newsletter as well as on our Facebook page on the month of their birthday/death anniversary. Please click here to fill out a Love Gift Donation form.

Victor & Jeanne Yamamoto
Remembering their daughter
"We lost our daughter, Rebekah Lynn Aiko, on March 19, 1994, in a tragic car accident.  Becky was 19 years old and a sophomore at Washington State University.  In high school, she played tennis, was a cheerleader, captain of the dance team, and prom queen.  We love to brag about her!

It has been 25 years since our loss and yet, we miss her beautiful smile, vibrant personality, and loving heart every day.  Becky was our middle daughter and this "hole" in our family will always be there."

Becky Yamamoto 8/16/1974 - 3/19/94

Remembering her daughter

"Respect yourself and others, 
Accept them for who they are. 
Say kind words to those in need. 
Invest your trust in others.
Love and be loved. 
It is better to give than to receive. 
Expect to try and try again. 
Never give up hope. 
Care for others as they care for you. 
Life is not easy, but with love,
it will become easier."
