How do you comfort your mom that has lost 2 children?

Over 2 and a half years ago we lost our brother while his daughter was still a baby and his wife 3 weeks pregnant.  Approximately 3 months after that we lost my stepdad of 22 years, (my dad died when I was 9).  On the 1st of June this year we lost my baby brother at the age of 30. My mom buried 2 husbands and 2 children.  I wish there was something I could do or say to her to take her pain away...

Dearest Elmien, Last year I lost my only son, he was 13 yrs old, I have 2 little girls who are now 11 and 8. And when I read your story one thing stood out to me "how do I comfort my mom". When my son died, I thought it was the end of the world and that I wouldn't make it until I realised that I still have 2 children. There is no replacing all that your mom has lost, her boys will sadly never be returned to her but you need to remind her of the good memories and of the fact that she has you and 2 beautiful grand babies from your brother (I don't know if you have children). When these horrible tragedies happen we tend to focus on what we have lost and not on what we still have. Every day is a gift. I miss my boy every day and the pain is still so raw but don't let her miss out on every single day she has with who she still has. I want him back so badly it aches but I don't let it steel the joy I feel for having my 2 girls, as a matter of fact, it makes me appreciate them more. I send all of my love to all in your family who has suffered this loss Elmien, and I pray for strength, comfort & peace during the difficult days.
