The Buddys Story

In 2011, James and Caitie Morgan lost Caitie’s father, Buddy Parsons, to cancer. A few years later, the Morgan’s suddenly lost their one year-old son, who James Senior affectionately described as his “little buddy,” without explanation.

In the wake of these devastating losses, the Morgans tried traditional therapy and sought support groups to cope with their grief. However, it wasn’t until connecting with another couple who had also experienced the tragic and unexplained loss of a child that true healing began.

Driven to honor the two “Buddys” from their lives and to eager provide others the same opportunities for connective healing, the Buddys app was born.
