I wrote this post in response to the deaths of Debbie Reynolds and Carrie Fisher in December, 2016. Debbie died of a broken heart within a day of hearing of her daughter’s death.
It was an opportunity to educate others about the reality of child loss and a parent’s broken heart while the world’s attention was focused on the subject.

But for those of us living with the daily reality of a missing child and a broken heart this still rings true.
I think Bereaved Parents Month is an appropriate time to revisit it. ❤
