Here are some reflections from my late night/early morning reading:

Jeremy Shaton wrote in a New York Times blog about bereaved parents: “So where am I now, 13 years after my 2½-year-old son, Jacob, died because of a brain tumor? One thing I can say is that my junk mail has no idea where I am. The other day I threw out yet another letter offering to give us advice on Jacob’s college career, as well as a solicitation to re-subscribe to Highlights magazine.”

Have you experienced being a “high functioning bereaved parent”?
