Grief and memory keeping

One of our friends lost their 13 year old son in a car accident over the weekend. We are so heartbroken for them and it's been hard to process such a tragedy. I went looking for quotes on grief and this is the one that spoke to me.

 Tears are the silent language of grief. - Voltaire

This reminded of a post I wrote almost 2 years ago about documenting death and those who have passed on.  I also want to share a really great resource from scrapbook.com about Creating Memorial Albums After Loss and also scrapbooking grief. This is a very useful article that is worth reading.

Sadly, we will all have need for these resources at some point. I hope they will be helpful to you.
