I wasn't sure if I wanted to talk about the recent events in Traverse City regarding the death of Carly Lewis, but one of the best ways to deal with grief is to have someone to talk to. I didn't know Carly, but like everyone else I was heartbroken about what happened to her. As any parent would, I couldn't help but feel emotional pain and can't begin to understand how I would deal with the loss of one of my children. I hope that Carly's family can draw some comfort from the outpouring of prayers that the entire community, near and far, have shown since the news came out.
Hug your children, tell them that you love them - often.
