A friend of mine lost her son last year. Her brother, Mark Kelso, is a talented musician and has recorded an album called Grief and Grace, reflecting on the loss of his nephew. The lyrics of the title song are powerful: "Can you make space for grief and grace in your heart and mine? Can we hold it all - the terror and the bliss?"
Mark wanted a picture of his sister's hands for the album cover. Here are a couple of my favorites.
