Three members of the Give Grief a Voice team got to listen to Grayson’s story at his farmhouse in Iowa. His older sister made a few appearances as well, climbing onto her mother or father’s lap for a cuddle while they cried and talked. Being invited into the homes of families is one of the greatest honors for the Give Grief a Voice team members, and we are eternally grateful for the hospitality and willingness of the families to welcome us in and tell us their stories.
After the interview, Amy Drews – Buzzy’s Bees webmaster and Give Grief a Voice committee member – gave the writer, Lisa, the idea to write the story from Grayson’s perspective. Please enjoy the excerpt from his story entitled “I Am the One Who Points to the Sky.”
