"I lost my sun in a car accident but gained a grandson. But the grief remained as I could not determine what caused the accident. Also, my son was diabetic, and I could not figure out whether he got a blackout. But I knew with the grief eating up, I needed help, so I went for grief counseling. I am caring for my grandson now, but I can do it without the pain I used to feel of losing my son."
