Dear Vivian,

?

While you only wrote one line in response to Lana?s poem Shopping (After The Death of My Daughter), that one line speaks clearly of the pain you are experiencing. April 13th, the day your son died, is still very close and your wounds are still so very fresh. Grieving is a hard job and there are no time limits. This is a time to be gentle with yourself and allow yourself to grieve in your own way and in your own time.
We are so very sorry for your loss. We posted your note on the first page of The Grief Blog because we know it will help others as well as you by letting you know that you do not walk this path alone.

You might find it helpful to listen on Thursday mornings to the radio show Healing the Grieving Heart? You can find information about it and a link to it on the first page of http://www.thegriefblog.com? You might also find a number of past shows that can give you help and comfort at http://thegriefblog.com/grief-grieving-death-of-a-child/

Help and support can also be found through a Compassionate Friends Group in Your Area. For more information go to http://www.compassionatefriends.org/? You can find a local group as well as many valuable resources to help you along the way. Each member has experienced the death of a child and each has survived and grieved in his or her own way. With this group you do not have to walk this path alone.

Blessings,

Drs. Gloria and Heidi Horsley
