There are no words for the loss of a child. There are no actions that can take away that pain. I wish there was. I wish I could hold my friend close and just for a moment absorb some of her grief so that she did not have to feel it. But I cannot. All I can do is love her family, pray for their coming days, offer condolences that seem so cold in comparison to the warmth of their son.
Hold your children a little tighter tomorrow. Thank God they are shared with you for one more day.
