Many of us are left wondering what we can do to help the Wetterlings and other families facing similar struggles. In a statement released today, Patty Wetterling answered that question.

The Wetterlings are deeply grieving and are pulling our family together. We will be eager to talk to media as soon as we are able. Everyone wants to know what they can do to help us.

Say a prayer.
Light a candle.
Be with friends.
Play with your children.
Hold Hands.
Eat ice cream.
Create joy.
Help your neighbor.

That is what will bring me comfort today. - Patty Wetterling
