“I first approached Aimee for some help and advice for my 4 year old son when his one and only sibling passed away. They were extremely close and my son loved her to bits. Aimee advised to keep him fully involved in all the plans we were making, for people not only visiting our home but also the funeral preparations. She gave us some amazing literature to read with our son to explain death on a child’s level so he could understand it a bit better. Aimee also said that we try and answer all of his questions as best as we can no matter how difficult they were to us at that time. Aimee was available at anytime for me to reach out to for help she was so helpful to our family and we will be forever grateful.”
