Last night on "A Mixed Bag with Chris B" on 93.7 Edge FM, our theme was "Goodbye". We heard songs with the word "Goodbye" in the title, or songs about leaving, running away, or saying goodbye.
When a family member passes, it is a time of pain and grief , but having to say Goodbye to your child must be the most difficult Goodbye of all.
There is an organisation called The Compassionate Friends which began in 1979. The organisation provides hope, love and support, offering friendship and understanding to bereaved parents, siblings and grandparents after the death of their child or children.
Here is a link to The Compassionate Friends website:-
Sue Whyman from the Bega Chapter of The Compassionate Friends was kind enough to grant an interview, and provided advice on helpful words we can say to someone who has lost a child. If you wish to contact the Bega chapter of The Compassionate Friends, you can ring Sue on 02 6492 1420 or Janice on 02 6492 1359.
