This comment was sent by a woman who also lost her son and who read one of my articles that was published in Broken Hearts Living Hope. This article is in the book "Topics in Grief".
I just read the December
issue and had to write a huge thank you to Leila Koepp for really
expressing how I think a lot of us really feel. I feel like copying
"How are you feeling today?" and handing it out to everyone I know. I
think the gut wrenching truth of it was beautiful because of its pure
honesty. Some thing I would like to add and that I have been getting a
lot of lately is people saying "(name of her son) would want you to be happy" (because
we all need a little more guilt) is that my (name of son), the (name of son) I raised, and
loved more than anything would lovingly and compassionately understand!
