As a grieving parent, you'd think I would know what to say at times of loss for others, yet I get so lost for words; maybe because I know words can't make it all better.
That said, I knew I needed to get better at finding the right words and I stumbled on to this book. It's a quick and easy read and really should be required reading for everyone. I may even begin giving it for graduation gifts☺.
It's really good information, even for someone who's still struggling daily with her own grief and should know what to say already...
