Last weekend I autographed books at The Compassionate Friends national conference in Bloomington, MN. About 1,500 bereaved parents were there and all had a story to tell. I asked parents about their deceased children and listened to stories that were so sad all I could say was "I'm sorry." Still, I think bereaved parents benefit from sharing and knowing they are not alone. I was blessed to meet these parents and spend some time, however fleeting, with them.
