Help for bereaved

To the Editor:

I wanted to send along a huge thanks to Wendy Littlefield for her wonderful community forum column on and for bereaved parents.

Everything she says is exactly right. I know five other people on the island besides myself in the same club, one no one wants to belong to.

It will be 10 years for me this July 29, and my daughter is still very much here. I have a wonderful life, but the platitude that time heals all wounds is so wrong.

One doesn’t want to cause embarrassment to others, but one does want to make a child a little closer by recalling her life from time to time.
