I have a 2 year old son and he has just in the last month lost his father due to a heart attack. I show him pictures of daddy everyday because it was what he was used to. Now anytime I put him in the car the first word out of his mouth is "daddy" is his own way. Last night I was showing him a picture of daddy and he started crying. This broke my heart, cause I know he is hurting but he is 2. How do you suggest I help my son through this. Any any advice for myself on loosing a spouse would be helpful also.

Firstly I want to say I am so sorry for your loss, I cannot imagine what you are going through.

I have not been in your position so I cannot fully comprehend how difficult this must be for you.

I would look into some professional advice for both you and your son and maybe see if there is a support group for young widows in your area. You will need other women you can relate to in this time.

I hope you are ok and once again I am really sorry for your loss *hugs
