This is something no parent should read if they have lost a child! I lost my son four years ago. If I had read this during that first year I do not know what I would have done in those darkest moments.

Excellent story--but a very tragic ending

This is a very good short story about grief and loss, and how each one of us copes in our own way. The author captures the sense of isolation and hopelessness following such a devastating loss as if she had experienced this herself. I sincerely hope not. One scene that stands out for me is when the mother is sitting in the hospital cafeteria trying to eat while her beloved young son is dying elsewhere in that very building. Her emotional meltdown at the unfairness of it all, by throwing her plate on the floor and crying out to everyone , is at first shocking, then very understandable. Her husband would never have displayed his grief so publicly in this manner at this time but we see, later on, how he chooses to cope with his loss. Throughout this story our focus is on the mother's obvious grieving, and our fear for her sanity and well-being, but what about the quiet, seemingly indifferent dad? He is hurting far worse than we thought! Tragic!
