Chicken Soup for the Grieving Soul: Stories About Life, Death, and Overcoming the Loss of a Loved One Jun 19, 2008
This is an excellent read, as are all of Jack Canfield's collections on the Chicken Soup series. I gifted this to a friend who just lost her young daughter, recently, and suddenly, I might add! I am hoping she will find this a tool of sorts, and find that other folks of all ages and circumstances in life are making this same journey in testing their faith, and strengthening it, as well. I depicted a certain story on page 13 for her, and she came back to me with a smile in church, and said that after reading this short story, it really fit! Thank you, Mr. Canfield and various authors, for your wonderful collections, and showing us as "FOOTPRINTS" suggests, HE carries us in times of trials, with ONE set of FOOTPRINTS!

What better time for that healing bowl of Chicken Soup than while one is grieving. The poignantly beautiful stories have touched me gently after the loss of the best son and friend one could ever have lost to death. I highly recommend this version of Chicken Soup if you have lost a loved one or as a gift to one you know. Each short story is a reminder that life truly does go on after death, and the healing for those living is possible.

I have not read the whole book but boy is it good so far. Very soothing although still a tear producer - which is good for the soul and healing also.
