While each person’s grief is as different as the individual, the hurt slowly changes from intense pain, and a focus on the child’s passing, to warmer memories and a commitment to lead their lives in the honor of the child. To live in a way, that would make that child happy or proud. Many families say that one of the most difficult things is to see the world go on when the child, brother, or sister is gone. So it is important to find special ways to remember them. These rememberances can be as simple as including the child’s name often in conversation, telling stories about the child, or making a special family memorial where family members can gather to remember and honor the child.

The bond between parent and child, brother or sister will never be broken because of the love that has been shared, and it will always remain.
