Communication is the key to
survival for
bereaved parents
Talk to someone!

And through all the tears,

and the sadness
and the pain,
comes the one thought
that can make me
internally smile again:
   I have Loved!

   *   *   *   *
The first time a memory
slides over us like a wave
of warmth,
we have turned the
corner of our grief.
