To the point:
My daughter has asked me what she can do or say to support CC in the very best way!! I haven't ever lost a parent so I am coming to you for your advise.
My daughter is super sensitive and has her own problems of severe RA and Fibromialgia which leaves her bedridden on many days. Their other best friend has lived with us for 2 years because her father is in prison and her mother is clinically, mentally ill. She also had an extremely bad case of Scoliosis and had to have a rod placed down her total spine several years ago-it was sooo bad it caused her to become 2 inches taller.
The reason I'm explaining my daughter and their other best friends family and medical issues is because even though they haven't experienced the pain of loss the way that CC has, they have endured allot of other types of pain in their very young lives.
All 3 girls are 18.
CC is in college, she is living at college 45 minutes away from home. She was supposed to come here last night but could not stand to be in the family home alone with out her mother being there. My girls went to her college town to be with her immediately after hearing the news!
CC went with her grandfather this morning to identify the body and have it released.
This young lady may end up having to drop out of college to care for her siblings as a young adult.
PLEASE! Any advise would be greatly appreciated!!
