A Mother And Child, Healing Their Grief Together
The StoryCorps Mobile Booth recently traveled to San Antonio to collect personal stories that will be archived at the Library of Congress. It was an opportunity for Mary Pritchard and her teenage daughter Samantha to talk about a difficult time, when Mary had to tell five-year-old Samantha that her father had died.
"You just stared straight ahead out that floral window, and you smiled. And I remember thinking, 'Does she understand?'"
In the audio above, Mary and Samantha talk about grieving together and becoming a new kind of family.
