Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

The experience of losing a parent in death is almost universal -- and yet many who feel this loss for the first time are surprised at how painful it can be. Even those well into adulthood are often taken aback by the deep sense of loneliness, the sense of being "orphaned", that the death of a mother or father can bring.

In Finding Your Way After Your Parent Dies, Rev. Richard Gilbert has created a compassionate guide for those struggling with the loss of a parent. Bringing many years of experience in bereavement counseling, Gilbert sketches out some of the issues that arise in the wake of a parent's death and offers practical suggestions for navigating these difficulties. From the disorientation that can come immediately after death to relating to the surviving parent to healing old emotional wounds, the topics dealt with here will be of tremendous help to many.

Combining a warm, empathetic approach with an expertise in grief, Gilbert's Finding Your Way After Your Parent Dies is a resource that will be deeply appreciated by those who have lost a parent and by those ministering to them.

As the author of this book I simply want to invite you to contact me if you need to talk. This book has instruction and what I believe to be very important information. Most of all, it is an invitation to explore the needs, issues and feelings that have become your grief journey. Keep us in mind if you need to talk.

The loss of a parent is one of the profoundly life-changing traumas of our lives. As we grieve for our mother or father, we often wonder where to turn to understand our feelings and our frustrations. This is a book that can help us in the many and varied aspects our sorrow. In Finding Your Way after Your Parent Dies, the author, Richard B. Gilbert, walks with us each step of the way. Gilbert is a minister in the Evangelical Anglican Church in America and a specialist in bereavement care. In this slim volume, Gilbert serves as a trusted friend in helping those who are grieving walk step by step through this particular dark valley.
Although he writes primarily for those who are recently bereaved, the author has a fine chapter for those who lost a parent many years ago, in childhood, and who are now dealing with that loss as an adult. Other chapters deal with relating to your surviving parent, how to deal with loneliness, marking appropriate boundaries, practicing healthy living, seeking counseling and the gift of time. Each chapter concludes with a summary page that offers a brief, inspirational thought, an opportunity for doing something related to that issue, and lovely prayers.
Among the very helpful aspects of the book one of the best is the long list of resources in the back, separated by the chapter topics. It would certainly be a starting point for those who either want to explore an aspect of the book further, or who were not helped by that particular section of the book and need "something more." There are resources listed that are written specifically for men or for women, both of whom have specific and not necessarily similar concerns when a parent dies.

My mother and my oldest son were killed in an automobile accident seven months ago. I have already read many books on coping with the death of a child and losing a loved one through sudden death. This is the first one I have read on dealing with the death of a parent. I found the chapters to be too short and not enough depth. I did, however, like the "Thought, Opportunity, and Prayer" section at the end of each chapter.
