Lost both our granddaughters, 3 years apart. The pain is almost unbearable.
Family - Keep family around you and esp your wife when she comes home. Like most women she will blame herself - Don't let her, keep her close and if possible keep yourselves busy. Don't feel guilty about doing things that take your mind off the loss of your son because it helps and you have a daughter to love too.
My stepgrandson who is 8yo wrote this poem recently, his twin sisters were born on Valentines day
Once upon a time there was a rose. It only blooms in February. It is a rainbow rose. One day it grew in my garden. I took good care of it. It would never die. You can make one wish a day. The best wish was to bring Jaydyn and Jordyn back. A lot of people want it....
So kids think about it more than we might think they do.
