Reviews - What do customers think about Life After The Death Of My Son?

A Worthy Read  May 25, 2010
Unfortunately the need for this book is there. I found it to be a pretty thorough and thoughtful book. He captures the heart of our loss very completely. To read the thoughts and feelings of a man whos career is that of a Pastor, talk about his anger was so good for me. To hear others say exactly what you are thinking, you learn you're not so crazy after all, just truly heartbroken. To keep your faith through the anger and the hardest days of your life is not easy but it is necessary, to have hope.
A MUST read for parents & family who's beloved child must leave us. This book is a Guiding Light thru the valley of grief.  Sep 30, 2009

"The unthinkable has happened! I have lost my only son, my oldest child on August 2, 2009. He just turned 27 on June 3rd, 2009. Somewhere on those first dark days, in which the fog and gut wrenching pain only allows me to remember being picked up off my knees several times crippled with pain, and having this book recommended to me. I thank God, and my friend for recommending this book. I was desperate for comfort, hope, and to know that someone, anyone lived through this devastation. In this book, Dennis Apple speaks candidly about the loss of his son Denny, offering an intimat look into one of the most devestating and frightful times of Dennis and his family's life. Through his loss and experience, Dennis Apple gave me a life preserver, when I was plunged into the cold, frightning ocean of darkness called grief. An ocean where bereaved parents, have never tread, never wanted or imagined to be thrown into, have no idea how to swim against the current of grief, and can feel themselves drowning. Dennis Apple's book gave me the hope that I could get through this, I could learn to breath again, and survive my son's death. I highly recommend this powerful, yet gentle read, it is truly a guiding light through this storm. Thank you Dennis, Buelah, Andrew and Angel Denny! I am so sorry for your loss, and the tragic loss of your son, that gave you the "experience" to write this book of hope for bereaved parents. Thank you for your honesty with about questioning your faith, and the depression that can set in, if not paid attention to. This book made me pay attention to the HOPE for tomorrow, prepare for the waves of grief, the hills and valleys, and that what I am feeling is "normal" normal as a newly bereaved mother can be. Blessings!"
For those who remain.  May 29, 2009
Dennis Apple does an excellent job in sharing what life is like after the loss of a child. This book will really help those who are trying to help others who are going through grief. They will be able to better understand what those grieving are going through. It will also give those going through it hope, knowing others have made it through it as well, and that they really are not going off the deep end.
I Could Have Written This Book  Mar 24, 2009
My wife and could have written this book. Dennis Apple's words express the same raw, palalyzing, draining emotions we felt when we lost our twenty-seven year old son, Eben, in a car-motorcycle accident. Dennis tells how people around him did not 'comprehend' how life stopped for he and his wife. Anyone lost a son/daughter needs to read this. You have a friend that understands. It will help you release your grief. It only has been a year and half for us, but with God's grace we are healing day by day. rudyghoggard
Really good book, I could have wrote it myself  Dec 11, 2008
I really think this book is so true for anyone who has grieved the loss of a child. Even though my child died stillborn 4 days before birth (full term) I can relate to the extreme sadness that one has after the loss. He says in the book how the death of a child is harder than any othe loss because it is the loss of the future and your hopes and dreams... I couldn't have said it better myself.

I wish people could read this book who were family members so they would see what the feeling is really like. It is something you just learn to live with and you have a "new normal".
