When I lost my child in a car accident, I was completely disoriented and didn't know how I could go on living. I became involved in COPE and received the support I needed to gradually regain my spirit and to continue to move forward in my life.  L.J.

Certain responses to the death of a brother or sister are common.  Being aware of these responses will help you to be sympathetic and perhaps also will help the child work through his or her feelings.
