Five-year-old Samantha is very sad. Her grandmother has just died.
How do parents deal with their children’s grief, as they themselves are suffering the same loss?
Good Night, Grammy shows how one family helps their daughter remember the loss of her beloved grandmother.
One night as Samantha is getting ready for bed, her mother asks her what book she would like to be read.
Suddenly sadness fills Samantha’s face and tears fill up her little eyes.
“What’s wrong, Samantha?” Mom and Dad are very concerned.
“I was thinking of Grammy and how she would read me stories before bed and cuddle with me in the big rocking chair. I miss hearing her voice. It would calm me before bed and it just makes me so sad.”
Dad gets a tissue and Mom wipes her tears and consoles her. Mom tells Samantha, “We all miss her so much. What can we do to make you feel better?”
Samantha thinks. “Actually Mommy, can I do a bedtime prayer for Grammy?”
