Family is the most important thing to all of us and when something happens to disrupt that, it can be incredibly difficult. That’s why we’re grateful for today’s guests, C.J. and Greg Malson, who are former clients and endured a traumatic loss when their son Ian died tragically in 2019.
Everyone wants to hear that everything will be okay, but we want to have an open and honest conversation about the true feelings and emotions that parents have to process in this unthinkable situation.
We’ve broken this conversation into three parts since there’s a lot to digest, but you’ll want to hear each piece of the story. Our first part focused on the family and the relationships they developed with each child. In part two, we went back to the tragedy and the days that followed.
In this final part, we discuss some of the tools they’ve used to get through this and the advice they’d give to other parents dealing with this. As you’ll hear, the pain never goes away but time helps ease the grief.
Here is some of what we’ll cover in this episode:
0:00 – Intro
0:32 – Tools they’ve used to get through this
7:01 – How long before the agony subsides?
15:00 – Advice they’d give other parents in this position
22:26 – What you learn from others
