Coping with Child’s Death

Dear Editor: I didn’t want the Easter season to end without commenting on Carol Powell’s reflection (May 13) on the death of her granddaughter. She wrote of the human pain (which I too have experienced) of not being able to hold her granddaughter or watch her grow and participate in her life.

But Carol is a woman of faith, so she also describes the death as a birth into eternal life. I believe we find the Resurrection within the cross. They are not separate.

Thank you, Carol, for bringing your healing words to minister to another grandmother’s broken heart.
