Item description for Letters from Lillian: From Her Heavenly Home to My Heart by Lee Toms...
Overview Writing a journal of letters to a dearly-beloved spouse who has died is a form of therapy commonly recommended by grief counselors. In Letters from Lillian, however, the journaling experience is turned inside out as Dr. Lee Toms writes letters as if his wife, Lillian, was communicating to him during his first year of grief. Tender, compassionate, and uplifting, each letter details what he believes she would say and do in encouragement and love. The reading of these letters and recognition of the spiritual bond between the two in this marriage will encourage everyone dealing with grief as it inspires new ways to heal.
