Has anyone lost their child to either murder or suicide? If so, how do you begin the healing process? I lost my 24 year old son last month. Most nights I just cry myself to sleep. I find it very difficult to show my emotions during the day since everyone expects me to be the strong one. We have two younger children that are in their teens.. My husband and I run a business and we were only able to close for one week after his death. It just wasn't long enough to recuperate. I feel like I am on autopilot most days. I worry that my son's soul is not at rest because of the circumstances of his death. I am looking for answers to questions that may never be answered. Has anyone gone through anything like this before and can they provide help?
