This should be a happy time of the year, but unfortunately tragedy can strike at any time. A reader emailed to us recently:
"A friend of the family recently lost his mother, and is having a had time dealing with the pain. Although he has lots of support from family and friends, understandably the pain is still affecting him on a day to day basis. It might be helpful for him to talk with a professional who can help him work through his grieving, and I was hoping the UrbanMamas community would be able to share some suggestions on counselors or therapists for him to contact."
