If you have not read this book, you may want to find it:

Comfort: A Journey Through Grief
by Ann Hood

She very suddenly had her five-year-old daughter die, and the book is about how very much comfort was *lacking* in her life from then on. It is not a book with cheap answers about grief or cheap advice on how to get through it; she is honest about what it is truly like.

Thinking of you and of Daniel,
