My 5 year old grandson died on September 2, 2009. He fell out of a 3rd story window and landed on the cement below. He fell at about 3:15pm, and died at 8:05 from massive head and brain injury.
I am having a really hard time dealing with this. I have to be strong for my daughter and her other son, my grandson, who is 8 years old. I don't know how I can grieve. He wasn't my son. He was my grandson.
Someone once told me that people who grieve for an adult, grieve for what was. But people who grieve for a child grieve for what could have been.
I am grieving for what was, and what could have been. How do I allow myself to grieve, and still be there for my daughter, and my other grandson? Has anyone else been through this?
