Family and friends can be very insensitive to a grieving heart, especially if they do not understand the grieving process. The loss of a child is so deep that words cannot even be found to express how it feels. Grief is a process, not an event and it takes as long as you need to bring healing. Losing a child affects husband, wife, siblings, grandparents, other relatives and friends who can make the process of grief take longer than people understand. Continue to acknowledge your pain to those that do understand.
