    What People Say !

    What People Say !

    Today we talked openly about the laundry list of phrases that people rely on in these situations. When there is nothing that makes sense to say, or nothing seems to quite feel adequate we often times just blurt out whatever comes to mind.  Listen as Dawn and Tricia talk about the frustration and comedic effect some of these phrases had on them.  

    They also share with you the private details of the "letters" left behind as they debate if they brought peace or more questions. These mothers wish to give you an inside look of the struggles that accompany reading your child's last words. Did it give them what they needed, or leave them desperate for more answers?
