OAK BROOK, Ill., Nov. 20, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- When a child has died, the normally festive holiday season can be one of great sadness and pain for the family that finds itself with an empty chair at the dinner table or one less stocking to hang by the chimney. With the holidays upon us, "friends and family so often ask us what they can do to help," says Patricia Loder, a twice-bereaved parent, and a bereaved sibling who is the Executive Director of The Compassionate Friends, the nation's largest self-help bereavement organization.
"There are many gifts that cost very little for friends and family, but can help brighten the holidays for the bereaved," she says.
Some of those gifts, says Mrs. Loder, include:
The Compassionate Friends has more than 650 chapters in the United States offering support to bereaved families during this difficult time of the year. The organization, in conjunction with other groups around the world, sponsors a Worldwide Candle Lighting the second Sunday in December with hundreds of services open to the public behind held throughout the day.
