LOS ANGELES (CBS) — With all the varying types of grief — loss of a parent, or pet, divorce or a break-up, being fired — behavioral experts say they all pale in comparison to the loss of a child.

Coping with the death of a child through illness is excrutiating enough but the grief can be compounded when a loss of a child comes from senseless violence. Just HOW do parents, or those left behind, cope or deal with something that makes no sense?

CBS 2’s Amy Murphy talked to the people at griefhaven.org to find out.

Griefhaven.org was started to provide hope and support to parents who have lost a child as well as siblings, grandparents, teachers, family friends…anyone impacted by the death of a child.

The Arizona tragedy bears this out. One of the victims, 9-year-old Christina Taylor Green leaves behind grieving parents, classmates, and a friend/neighbor who took her to the “Congress on the Corner” event.

Griefhaven.org understands the grief that 58-year-old Susan Hileman will feel and that it will be immeasurable.
