5.0 out of 5 stars when there are no words, July 24, 2006
This review is from: When There Are No Words: Finding Your Way to Cope with Loss and Grief (Paperback)
My husband & I lost our 1st son on 10/31/98 in an auto

accident and was given this book from a friend trying

to help us with this tragic loss. It was the turning point

to dealing with our grief. Tragically we lost our only other

son in an accident on 04/24/03. We have been thru grief re-covery classes,read several books on grief but always came

back to this book. Throughout these years we have been able

to help others by giving them this book of encouragement

and understanding during the grief process. If you could

pass this along to the author, Charlie Walton, we would

appreciate this very much! God has given us the Grace to

see us thru the grief process, this book and friends!

I am so incredibly sorry that you lost both of your children. It's just unimaginable - it's hard to understand all this. Its like all the people I am the closest too, the people I depend on and trust the most are all being taken away from me. I just don't understand. It's all a part of the big plan, but it's hard to understand. I hope this hasn't caused a problem in your marriage, I heard that 65% of couples divorce after the loss of a child. men and women grieve so differently. I've heard women say that they thought men got over things faster. Nothing could be further from the truth. Men just aren't external in how they express things. It is better to cry and get relief from all the pan than holding it all in. I haven't lost a child, but we lost our only pregnancy to a miscarriage. It was horrible. I lost my wife in June, and my mother the year before. Hope you know people out there care. It's hard that we all get shunned because nobody knows what to say. I say tell them not to say anything.. just be there. That's all they have to do.

I am deeply sorry for your loss of both of your sons. I lost my best friend a few years back, followed by my grandmother. Very recently my other grandmother, I researched this book for my grandfather, to help him cope. He does not know how he is going to go on without her in his life. After reading these postings, I think that I will also purchase a copy for myself. Throughout the years, with the loss that I have suffered, I never really dealt with it, and I think that this will help me to deal with it and be at peace with it.
Thank you for your inspiration.

I lost a wonderful friend just recently and came looking for a book to help myself work through this somehow. My husband , having fortunately thus far not experienced this, cannot understand the unbelievable pain I awaken with, go to bed with, and how it can sneak up on you during any moment. I didn't know my heart could actually feel broken! This friend helped my three kids and I when I was a newly divorced gal feeling lost and financially broken, and in need of help in so many ways. Her cheerful and loving attitude made me feel that I was gonna be okay. Someone in this world cared and no just through words. I had a 4 week old infant she just loved and cuddled and nurtured on those days my other two were in school and I needed time to breath and renew. She never asked for one thing in return!! she was our guardian angel and when I realize she's no longer on this earth to make this world make sense.......I've never felt so lost and so sad. so I think I'll buy this book and find a way to begin to deal with her death.
