The death of a child is perhaps the most tragic death of all – a life taken before it gets the chance to grow.
When I was eight years-old, my six year-old sister died ten days before Christmas. Our family was devastated. We were new to Seattle, having moved from St. Louis just four months prior. Thankfully, the local community reached out to my family to help support us through the unimaginable grief, and unenviable confusion of burying my sister.
