Hello,

   My name is Brandi I am dealing with my nine year old son that in the time frame o 24 days lost his papa, a classmate to a tragic accident, his grandma and then his great grandma had a heart attack but she did survive but all of this has take a tremendous toll on him.  He has been very angry and defiantly not his free spirited, carefree self.  Recently he told me that he has been hearing his classmates voice and talking to him.  Once I became aware that was going on I could recall hearing him talking at night but assumed he was just talking in his sleep.  I have him meeting with his school counsler on a regular basis but I just don't have a clue on how to deal with this.  So any help would be greatly apperciated. Thank you
