My eyes see the pain in my stepson’s e-mails and texts. He misses his Dad so much. I lost my Dad in 2014 so I know how much it hurts. Watching my Dad’s coffin going into the cold, cold ground was an image I will never forget. There’s no way for me to heal my stepson’s pain. All I can do is be present, and to offer some advice about how I deal with the loss of my husband, his Dad. I’m not dealing with it very well, but I am dealing. I only hope that my attempts to cope help him.
