A co-worker & very close friend of my wife lost her 19 year old daughter today in an auto accident? My wife & I were not fortunate enough to have children, but how does/would a parent cope with this kind of loss? I can't imagine. It is horrible for me to think about it. I can hardly think about this, with breaking into tears even though I am at work. My wife left work to be with her friend. I don't know how she is doing it. What do you say? How can you say anything? I fell so sorry for that whole family. Things like this - I just don't understand.
