grieve. So do children. As an adult or child, experiencing grief
means to "feel," not just to "understand." Anyone old enough to
love is old enough to grieve. Even before children are able to
talk, they grieve when someone loved dies. And these feelings
about the death become a part of their lives forever.
|They Live On
Those we love remain with us
For love itself
Cherished memories never fade
Because one loved
Those we love can never be
More than a thought
For as long as there’s a memory,
on within our heart.
