    It seems most of the people who are moved to answer this question have lost a parent at an early age. It is truly a life-changing experience. I'm so sorry.

    I think you're pretty lucky Kennedi, all of my kids lost close friends in high school, mostly car accidents. It's never easy.

    I'm so sorry duffsmom. I know how hard it is because my dad died when I was 6. Adults think kids don't understand as much or grieve as deeply, but I know it isn't true.

    Thank you for your response TeacherCaro. I'm so sorry about your cousin. Suicide does cause a special kind of pain, it seems so avoidable.

    It sounds like your brother in law died unexpectedly, I think that's more shocking to those left behind. I recently lost a friend to cancer, even though we knew it was coming and was an end to her suffering it was very hard. Sorry for your losses.

    Thanks for answering my question. Losing a peer like a cousin is hard on a child, even if the relationship is not close.

    You were so lucky to have your grandpa in your life while you were growing up. The death of someone you love is hard at any age, but at least you have lots of good memories of him. You must miss him terribly. Sorry for your loss.
