In May our country celebrates Mother’s Day which is a day when we honor our Mothers who are still here and fondly remember those Mothers who are a part of the hereafter. For those Mothers who are grieving the death of a child from suicide or those children who are grieving the loss of a Mother from suicide this is an especially painful day.
Family Conflict after a Suicide Loss
Friday, April 20, 2018 by Cynthia Waderlow MSE, LCSW
Infighting and conflict after the death of a primary family member is a difficult but recognized manifestation of grief. Suicide grief, in particular, can take us down to base level, sometimes to our most primitive responses of blame and rage. These initial feelings are common, and often part of the changed world after suicide loss.

In June, we set aside a day to honor our fathers. It is a day where we buy a gift or do something special for our fathers. The traditional gifts that fathers are given on this day range from a shirt, a tie or something for the toolbox, or something else manly. Those gifts are contrasted with the gifts we give to our mother – flowers, a box of candy or something more feminine. The cards are different. Very often a Father’s Day card has a scene that is something from the outdoors or something that is masculine as opposed to the cards that we have for our mothers. Even the messages very often lack the warmth and the care that it has in cards that are meant for our mothers. The biggest day of the year for cemetery visitation is Mother’s Day. Why not Father’s Day?
