I have never personally lost a child and I would be devastated if any of my boys died before I did. There is something intrinsically unnatural about it. I have lost close family and friends so here is what I can impart.

I grieve in the shower - cry my heart out and let the water take my tears down the drain. That is my ME time and allows me to put on a face and be stronger for someone else who needs that comfort.
