“Understanding grief under painful circumstances”

December 11, 2012

Every memory of the child who has died must be summoned up with all its feelings and reworked with the new and painful knowledge that your child is gone. This I can tell you after loosing our son was the most painful aspects of grieving. We love the dead differently from how we love the living.

Remembering and bringing up feelings and memories is how I accomplished this painful task.
