When Tammy died of cancer at age 28, she left behind two children, a six-year-old girl and a four-year-old boy.
Our family was confident that their father, a social worker, would know how to cope with his own grief as well as the children’s.
What we saw as Tammy was dying, at the funeral, and after her death concerned us all.
We didn’t see the children at family holiday celebrations for years; it was just too difficult for them.
Years later, as the children grew to be adults, we wondered how much their mother’s death played a factor in the lives they chose to lead.
If you have lost a loved one and are now caring for the children who were left behind, you may be overwhelmed with all the changes and unexpected issues you are facing.
