Comforting the Grieving

I've included on my Reading, Writing & Ruminations page an essay about what to say and what not to say to someone who is grieving over the loss of a child. It's so difficult to know what to say to someone who has experienced such a devastating loss. My point in posting this essay was to help make a difficult situation a little less awkward.

Good for you, Pryncess, for taking the time and effort to find out what is appropriate.
When my husband died, it was hardest for me when people didn't say ANYTHING! I felt they weren't honoring him by even recognizing the fact that he had died. Silence can hurt more than an awkward word or two that comes from the heart.
