Hi everyone,my name is Trish,and i've just joined this group in order to help my friend and her family.Her 4 year old grandson got out behind his dads truck without his dad knowing it,and when he backed up,he ran over him killing him and doing serious damage to his little body.Naturally the family is distraught,and I'm trying so hard to be there for them,to help and support them and I have no idea what to say to them.The dad keeps telling me he killed his baby and he wants to die with him,he's watched very closely.The Nana has her shirt and bra,blood all over it in her bedroom but won't let anyone throw it away,saying it has Aaron's blood on it,so she's keeping it.They've built a shrine in the yard where his little body died.I'm alway's there with my arms around them when they cry,and listen when they talk,but I don't know what to say and I feel that i'm letting them down.I know you all suffer pain of losing loved ones,and i'm so sorry for your loss.I hope there's something you can tell me to do to help my friends.Thank you so much.
