I found this on http://www.onewomansperspective02.wordpress.com. It is often so hard to know what to say or do when someone has lost a friend or family member, but even harder when that person has lost a child. This article may help others.
As a grieving mother, I’ve been fortunate to have many loving, caring people surround me with help and support. I know that God sends people and resources to me just when I need them. Today is the six month “anniversary” of my son’s death. I am in need of solace and time to cry without worrying about what anyone else thinks.
