When someone you love dies, Earl Grollman writes, "there is no way to predict how you will feel. The reactions of grief are not like recipes, with given ingredients, and certain results. . . .

A Must for Anyone Who Hurts From a Loss Dec 17, 2007
This book was a gift a year after the death of my beloved mother, my best friend. Every feeling I had experienced so far was explained in the book, and it helped me to deal with all the continuing sense of loss. And I often still, five years after her death, refer to the book to remind me it's okay to feel the way I feel. My father and my husband and I have each given copies of this book to friends and family members suffering a loss; and every time we find the receipient is so grateful to have their emotions validated in such a beautiful and meaningful way. We make sure we have at least 3 or 4 copies on hand; we're getting to the ages when such a gift is important to have on hand.
Death of a friend... Oct 10, 2007
It has been almost a year since my wife died suddenly and unexpectedly. Since then I've spent much time reading and pondering, trying to come to terms with my new reality. This is one of two books I found which provided enough comfort that I've given copies to other newly berieved widows and widowers.
