Please see the individual tabs for grief resources and book I recommend specific to your kind of loss.  
For immediate help, see, Griefshare, Open to HopeCompassionate Friends and Red Bird Ministries (for child loss of any age), and Friends for Survival (suicide loss)

And don't forget the siblings. They are often forgotten in grief, regardless of age. 

Do you think someone you know should be over their grief by now? Love is forever, so loved ones are missed forever. There is no timetable for grief, and everyone grieves differently. The bereaved can benefit from your love and support, especially in anticipation of anniversaries, birthdays, and holidays. And the greatest gift you can give the bereaved is your physical presence, no matter how uncomfortable you may feel inside. It's ok to say "I don't know what to say." As Maya Angelou put it:
“I’ve learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.”
