Warrington, PA – When a loved one is taken away very suddenly, life is broken in a way that can never be repaired.

When a parent is faced with the unbearable tragedy of losing a child, nothing can fill that void or heal that wound.

But even if you experience tragedy, it is possible to move forward. It’s possible to have a productive life again. Your life will never be the same but it can be a good life.

Rosemarie Kaupp lost her son Chris when he was only 23 years old. Six weeks later, her husband passed away. All this had been preceded by her cancer diagnosis and treatment.

Rosemarie Kaupp could have chosen to let the experience destroy her. Instead, she carried on.

She began writing to help memorialize Chris’s life and preserve her connection to him.

“The death of a child punctuates your life. There is a clear before and after,” says Rosemarie. “For me, it’s been 20 years. The pain is not as intense as it once was. You learn to live with it. I try to communicate that with my blog. The sorrow is always there, but it doesn't have to overwhelm you. The spirits come to you. You’re not alone.”

Her blog also discusses coping techniques to handle emotions and go on with daily living.

Today, Rosemarie is the author of The Amberella Tales, a series of early chapter books for children ages 5 to 9 years old in kindergarten thru fourth grade. Perhaps more importantly, she keeps a blog to share her thoughts and feelings for other bereaved parents.

“Our memories are so important and the only way to preserve them is to really like talk about them and visualize them and talk about them with other people.”
