August 5th 2012, almost two years ago on a gray, windy day on the shore of Lake Michigan, my dad drowned saving two boys.  We were staying at a friend’s lakefront home, celebrating my younger brother’s Little League World Series’ victory when it happened.  In an instant, after he had rushed into the water -and rescued the boys, he was swept away by a rip current, and our lives changed forever.

Mother's Day. For many, this is a special day to celebrate their mom. Some might buy their mom flowers; others might make her breakfast in bed or take her to brunch. What about children and teens that have had a mom die? What about them? They are surrounded by images of Mother's Day at every turn.  Just about every store they go to has an advertisement about Mother's Day. There are also plenty of TV ads. When you're grieving the death of your mom, these reminders can be quite painful.  How can you help the grieving children and teens in your life on this Mother's Day?
