I just lost my sister two weeks ago... people are so well intentioned but lack the skill of comforting words... thanks so much for sharing this...

Having lost a baby a few years ago, this would have been so helpful - sometimes people just don't know what to say, so they say things that are well-meaning, but just don't help much. This is beautiful. A great reminder that God walks - and grieves - with us through our pain. Thanks for sharing.

Just now seeing this - a great reminder for us all. I hope you're doing well!

Instead of: "She wouldn't want you to grieve."

This one infuriated me. Of all the people I have known, your sister would understand and simply have hugged me & cried with me, without critique.

A well-needed post, Crys. This season of the year fills me with the most hope & optimism that 'one day'... no more goodbyes--ever. But it took me years to reach that point.

I recently ran across your blog and I think it's beautiful. And your pictures are BREATHTAKING!!! I'm going to have to be one of your stalkers...

Thank you for sharing these. I've always struggled with 'appropriate comfort' and these are sensitive, show caring, and respect for the deceased and the grieving.
Thank you!
