  • I don't think that Mom's who have lost a child will find much humor in this.

  • I think it is best not to say anything at all except, "I am here if you need anything at all!"

    I've lost 6, and 2 of those were late-term. Nothing a person can say is soothing, and most of it just makes it worse.

  • You just shouldn't say anything except "I'm so sorry, and I'm here for you." Things like some of those listed above, are just insensitive.

  • I dont really have a "saying" but my friend told me about a friend's funeral for her baby and one of the attendees brought her baby along. She was bouncing the baby on her knees saying WEEEEEEEE! WEEEEEEE! I couldnt imagine how awkward and miserable that made the mom feel who just lost her daughter and couldnt experience that joy.
