    This is a terrible tragedy. I don’t know how the child died but the mother obviously felt like she couldn’t say anything. For all we know it was a teenage child who gave birth to a still born and was afraid to say anything. But, I’m speculating.

    I do, however, think that this might be a time where you could observe who shows up. Maybe the mother might feel a need to attend the funeral….
