Abstract/Summary

The loss of a mate can be devastating enough, but when your young child refuses to accept it, there is the added burden of trying to cope with two overwhelming problems.  Rhonda Gill lost her husband, Ken, to illness and death.  Their daughter, Desiree, age 4, refused to accept it.  Rhonda and her mother tried several different plans to help Desiree.  Finally, they came up with a solution that set everyone's minds at ease.
