This is most definitely for the best. We can't even imagine the confusion and sadness this poor little girl must be feeling.
In light of her husband Russell's shocking suicide, Taylor Armstrong now has the sole responsibility of helping the couple's five year old daughter, Kennedy, come to terms with the loss of her father by reading her books geared toward children who have lost parents, and will also be putting her into counseling so she can better grasp, and ultimately accept what has happened.
A source explains:
"Kennedy is only five, she understands that Russell has died - however, she keeps asking for him. Taylor has made the decision that Kennedy should see a mental health professional to deal with the loss of her father. Taylor's sole focus right now is taking care of her daughter, and helping her through this very difficult time. Kennedy doesn't know Russell killed himself, Kennedy is just too young to process the idea of suicide. Kennedy will most likely begin therapy sessions in the next week or so. Right now, Taylor is just trying to return to a normal routine for Kennedy's sake."
We really have to commend her for laying low and making sure she's doing everything she can to help little Kennedy.
It can't be easy to cope with such a complicated loss, especially after all the reports coming out regarding their deteriorating marriage, so she should be very proud of herself for pushing through her own pain and grief to keep her daughter's well-being the focus!
Hopefully both of them will be able keep each other strong right now.
Just never stop letting Kennedy know how much her mom loves her, and that she's not ever going anywhere.
We believe in you guys. You'll get through this, and until you do, we'll be keeping you in our thoughts.
