    We know your pain, we have been through it, as have many others, but that does not make things any easier. Know that God is with you through all of this. If you have not read the book “The Shack” or watched the movie, it helps to understand better your grief. I have the book and would gladly give it to you as a “pay it forward”. Please feel free to contact me if you would like the book. So very sorry for your loss, no matter what age your child is, their loss will be with you forever, but as one grieving parent said,” it changes after time”. My motto is “there is always someone out there who is worse off than me”. Keep yourself busy, it helps control the pain and heartache. prayers to you and your family.
