"Roe nicely describes the various emotions surviving spouses feel from shock, to tears that refuse to stop, to anger, to numbness. Most of us who have lost a spouse felt many of those emotions. Or the pain may have been so deep we temporarily felt nothing." --Cecil Murphey, New York Times Bestselling author of more than 130 books including 90 Minutes in Heaven and Gifted Hands:The Ben Carson Story.
"A look at the reality of grief that is long overdue. I highly recommend "Heartbroken" to anyone experiencing grief or involved with those who are." -Dr.Tony Taylor, Senior Pastor, Hilltop Lakes Chapel
"Heartbroken will be recommended reading to be used with my clients. Loss is frequently the presenting problem and often times it has been unresolved from years past. Gary's stories and insight are relevant to the grieving soul." -Carrie Andree, Licensed Professional Counselor
"Anyone who grieves the death of a spouse will find this book a welcome addition to the challenge of facing life without someone so special. More than a book of platitudes or theories, Heartbroken is filled with practical ways to embrace a situation that, while painful and difficult, can ultimately be life-giving. In a simple yet powerful format, Gary brings meaning and inspiration and facilitates the presence of hope and comfort, all crucial for those who grieve." - Dr. Craig Borchardt, President / CEO, Hospice Brazos Valley
"Heartbroken isexcellent. Sensitive, comforting, and practical, it will help widows andwidowers walk through the valley of grief and begin to heal. I highly recommend it." -Paul Casale, Licensed Mental Health Counselor / Marriage-Family Therapist

We are devastated. After the initial shock, reality "sets in". So many decisions to make. We are on an "emotional roller-coaster." We have to grieve in a way that will ultimately bring healing. A new perspective. I have personally been on this "grief journey" since April 26,2013. I have finally come to the realization that "I have to Live." That "God left me here for a reason."
After 35 years of marriage...losing my first & only love...it has truly been a long, heart wrenching journey. The words in this book not only come from Gary Roe, but many others who have experienced the loss of their spouse. The author, Gary Roe has experienced many losses in his life. His heart is set on helping others. I am so thankful for the "help" I have received not only from this book, but the many other resources he has made available to help us on our Journey. Thank You Gary Roe for your devotion to provide these resources for broken hearts💔
stories of having lost a loved one. It alerted me to the fact that I am not alone; in fact there are thousands
at any one time who is also grieving the loss of a loved one. I read it and didn't want to put it down until
I had finished the book. I then passed it on to another friend who lost her spouse 12 days after I lost mine.
I totally recommend it to anyone whether or not you've lost a loved one, spouse, etc. It is very informative
and easy reading.
I have since ordered 5 more copies for friends who are grieving, and I'm ready to order more. In place of flowers, or anything else, I find that the people I have gifted have been appreciative of this gift of healing. When I originally read the book, I went straight through it in one night. I think I must have just been reading words. I recently picked the book up again and re-read it. Took me three weeks to work my way through, sometimes only reading 2-3 pages at a time. I also took the time to answer the questions that followed each section of the book. Thanks again, Gary for helping me to make this journey.
