Be reassuring to the parents and or family. Often times, parents or spouses may have guilt over what happened. They feel that it is their fault in some way. A Friend said: "I know I blamed myself for my son's death for a very long time. If only I had been in the back and my mother had been driving. If only we hadn't driven so far." Reassure the parents or family that what happened is not their fault and that they didn't cause this to happen, should they hint toward these thoughts.
