If you know someone who has lost a child, and you’re afraid to mention them because you think you might make them sad by reminding them that they died-you’re not reminding them. They didn’t forget they died. What you’re reminding them of is that you remembered that they lived, and that is a great gift.
Elizabeth Edwards
To be perfectly frank, there is an odd place after losing a child, where you think somehow your life is worth less.

Jodi Picoult
