Oh, I am so sorry. The loss of a child is the hardest loss of all. Allow yourself to grieve and remember that each parent will grieve in his/her own way. Do not make judgements about how the other is grieving. One may want to talk and one may not want to talk. There is no right or wrong way of grieving. I would also seek out a support group of other parent who have lost children. Your local hospital, or funeral home should have the phone numbers of where to call. I know that it might seem difficult to face other people and think that they won't understand, but other parents who have gone through the same thing as you are the very ones that can truly understand the depth of your pain. Also realize that your community of family, friends, church, etc. all want to be there for you. Many of them won't know what to say, or how to react, but they do care, allow them to care for you. May God wrap you in His loving arms.
