I am 13, and I just found out that my uncle passed away today. how can I help my mom?
I was not very close with him, but my mom was. he acted more like her father than her actual dad did. we are a christian family, and so was he, and I keep telling her that because of his faith, there is no doubt he will be in heaven with the lord. seeing other people hurt has a worse effect on me than actually hurting, myself, so it's killing me to see her struggle. I know grieving is normal, but I just want to know what to say when she gets home from the hospital. I don't want to cry in front of her because that will make her worry. this is the first person I've lost since I was less than a year old. what should I say? she called my dad and he was the one that told me, plus she might not even be home tonight. I really appreciate your help. god bless.
