i was processing a death claim of one of our clients, the child died due to leukemia and he is still 5 years old. i could see the burden it took on the faces of my clients. I honestly could feel their pain and i try my best to sympathize and glad i was able to render my service as fast as i could. I know the benefits they received would not replace their kid.. indeed death really is hard right? as a parent i could not imagine life without my kids now.. and somehow i miss my kids now. want to go home.

I have the same feelings as yours. No words can ever take away the pain of a mourning parents. I could not imagine how to lose a child. Every parent will do anything, even sold all your belongings just to have money to cure your sick child. True, no one could ever replace our child.

true even if you will have another child it is not the same thing as each one is unique in their own way

Time is really precious and we never knew how we much we missed a single second once we lost our loved ones.

Losing a child is one of the most awful things that could happen to a person, because it completely defies everything that life is supposed to be about. This is not supposed to be the order that things happen in life, and when something happens to mean that things are changed in this way then it can be very confusing to people. I would hate for this to happen, and I just do not know how I would be able to cope if it did happen. I hope that those people will survive and get through this difficult time, and I hope that they have their friends and family around them who could be supportive of them.

somehow their lives will never be the same again Gemmar, but somehow a part of them is stronger from that event and somehow i know they will still move on like everyone does. yes you are right it did defies the order of thing, usually we expect older people to die first rather than those angelic babies..

That's really hard for someone to lose a loved one. Especially at a younger age. There's so much future for that child.

Theirs eight deaths in my family in last three years. I know the feeling of losing someone that we love. I guess you can't do anything about it but just process the claims that they needed. I know its not enough but sometimes we just need to separate what we feel from our job.
