6 Things to Never Say to a Bereaved Parent – Still Standing Magazine

6 Things to Never Say to a Bereaved Parent – Still Standing Magazine.

Nothing hits closer to home than the loss of a child.  We lost our Jessica Ann back on August 5, 2001 and I still remember her last breath as if it were yesterday.  I can now say that after 13 years of walking with the pain of her loss that the rawness of the event has diminished.  I will never “get over it” because that event defined who we were as a family and we have been changed forever.  Jessica was a bright ray of sunshine that could light up a room with her smile and left a mark on everyone who was close to her.  I will never get over that.  I chose to bask in the memory of that smile and her saying “Oh daddy!” when I would make her laugh.  Those are some of the happy memories that I have.  Please read this article and remember what it says the next time you are hanging out with someone who has lost a child.  Share it with your friends and family so they will know what to say or not say.
