Oh Hambone, I am so sorry. I just saw your posts. Truly heartbreaking!
One of the things I read about when we lost our son was that so often people don't think about the grandparents. They're hurting too, and they really feel for their kids.
Sending you thoughts and prayers.
You are so right Larry.. It is a double heartache for Grandparents.
First, you are grieving for the loss of a grand child... But, just as devastating, is the pain, I don't know how to word this... it's the agony you feel for your child who is suffering. That baby is no longer in pain....but you child is hurting bad... And it's a hurt that you can't really fix.
As you get older.. and you've had, parents and friends and especially friends parents passing away... you come to realize that dying is part of life. It happens.
But, losing a child is a whole different ball game. You expect parents and friends to pass away...
And those Sunday School answers just aren't much comfort to a parent who has lost a child.
This is the kind of loss that you never really get over. BUT, things will get better in time.
