Bereavement guidelines for loss of a child


If you think you are going insane…THAT'S NORMAL

If all you can do is cry…THAT'S NORMAL

If you have trouble with the most minor decisions…THAT'S NORMAL

If you can't taste your food or have any resemblance of an appetite…THAT'S NORMAL

If you have feelings of rage, denial and depression…THAT'S NORMAL

If you find yourself enjoying a funny moment and immediately feeling guilty…THAT'S NORMAL

If your friends dwindle away and you feel like you have the plague…THAT'S NORMAL

If your blood boils and the hair in your nose curls when someone tells you "It was God's will"
THAT'S NORMAL

If you can't talk about it, but can smash dishes, shred old phone books or kick the garbage can (preferably empty) down the lane…THAT'S NORMAL

If you can share your story, your feelings with an understanding listener, another bereaved parent
THAT'S A BEGINNING

If you can get a glimmer of your child’s life rather than his/her death…THAT'S WONDERFUL

If you can remember your child with a smile…THAT'S HEALING

If you find your mirrors have become windows and you are able to reach out to other bereaved parents…THAT'S GROWING

Wishing You Peace Along the Journey,
John-Daddy of Angel
