"When she was alive, we invited people in. We are learning how to help people connect with us again."
Bereaved parents talk about how when their daughter was alive, their home was warm and they actively invited people in to share the good times, to share in her life; and now that she is gone, they are figuring out how to reach out to invite people in again. They talk about their evolution in understanding their friends’ reactions since their daughter died. “The hard thing about bereavement is that you have to help others figure out how to be with you.”
