Re: loss of a grown child
I am very sorry for the loss of your daughter. Even though your heart is broken, they say time will heal. Poor girl but at least her suffering is over, maybe you can think of that when you feel like you cannot get out of the black hole. I hope you and your grandchild can help one another, her heart must be broken also, so hold on to one another. It becomes very difficult when everyone leaves and goes back to their normal life, so now its time for you and your grandchild to try and heal from that awful experience. Perhaps the both of you can somehow find a way to do good. Remember the things she loved. When my mother passed i made a little flower garden in front of my house. I have a gardian angel on one side of the garden and on the other side i have two children playing on a seesaw. That is me and my twin brother and even though we are older now, i have her overlooking us. It just makes me smile and keeps her closer to me. I hope you can try and focus on something of that nature. When a girl i worked with died at an early age from cancer, her wishes where to plant a tree in a park where she would bring her young grandchildren to play. This way when they were there, they could still be around her. And think of the wonderful times they shared when they were together there, or if they didnt remember, when their parents brought them there, they could tell them stories about Grand-ma. I hope you find some comfort soon and im so sorry you are going thru this.........
Almighty God, Father of all mercies and giver of all comfort: Deal graciously, we pray thee, with those who mourn, that casting every care on thee, they may know the consolation of thy love, through Jesus Christ our Lord.
