The extraordinary Love and wisdom that Jack and Kate share are there for anyone seeking to heal their heart. Not only are you going to understand and begin to release your grief over the physical loss of a beloved pet, but if you have lost other much loved beings to death, you may find this book will open the door to unresolved pain over those losses, too. Fear not. This book will take you by the heart and lead you, step by step, through the valley of grief, helping you understand that grieving is a process with a beginning, a middle, and an end.
Jack and Kate have given grievers another wonderful tool to help them recognize, process, and release the guilt and regrets, pain and grief over the death of a Beloved pet (or human). Healing is on the other side of that valley. Embrace the beauty and Love of a healed heart. This "Little Guide" shows you the way... read it and find healing and peace. Thank you, Jack. Thank you, Kate.
There are many ways that I've come to be a faithful reader of Jack McAfghan's books. The first introduction to Jack and his wisdom on grief and healing was when I "met" him years ago, while searching for pet loss support groups online. My heart dog, Lilly had just passed and no relief could be found for me..untiI I "stumbled" on Jack and his first book, "Reflections of Life with my Master". I discovered it was the love story of his master, Kate, and her love and life with him; then with only eight short years with his love, she had to say 'farewell' as he passed over the Bridge. It was the beginning of a profound grief for her. I know now that this book came into my hands by the grace of God, as it was my full story, too, about such extreme grief over the passing of an animal companion. This book changed my life because it spoke to me unlike any others. It is a love story that walks with you through your grief in a beautiful way towards healing and hope, confirming that they are only "gone from our sight" and that we will see them again in eternity.
Kate is a seasoned grief counselor who has over 30 years experience as a counselor in a hospice environment and if anyone would have the personal experience and expertise of helping people through the grieving process, it would be Kate.
She has written, through the voice of her beloved Jack, enduring wisdom that draws from these experiences of personal loss and assisting others in theirs.
"Only Gone From Sight" is Jack's 4th book, which was finished on the anniversary of Jack's fourth Rainbow Bridge anniversary. This little guide to healing grief is one that should be in the hands of everyone who is going through or has suffered through grief over the loss of a beloved human or animal. Reading through this wonderful book, I kept thinking of Kate and Jack and their amazing way of speaking right into the heart. Just a look at the table of contents, you'll see a well thought out and compassionate guide through grief in each chapter. When you're so lost in your pain, your soul flounders in doubt and fear. This little guide brings you back to shore. Every question, every doubt is settled here. Each chapter speakers to the practical and the spiritual; each a gift that answers everything your heart needs to heal.
It's coming on the 4th year of my heart friend's passing to the Bridge, too. And although, I must admit, there were many tears through reading this; mostly from thinking about how precious a life is; both human and animal. There's a certain length of time each one of us has on this earth. If we could navigate through the emotions when a beloved has passed with the truths that this little gem provides, then we could live a much happier one knowing, as this book confirms, that love and spirit never die. We will see our loved ones again.
I highly recommend this wonderful, little guide and handy reference for you in helping others, too. (I see this book in veterinarian's offices. They, too, experience grief - great guide for them and their animal caretakers.)

through my own mind. You never get over losing someone you truly love, but the love and understanding with which this book is written, leaves you with the feeling you are not alone with your grief, and that you will be reunited with your loved ones one day.
It will help you to understand things that aren't easy to get your head round when you're grieving. An easy read, where you can dip into the very well thought out chapters, as required.
"Only gone from your sight" is an essential guide through your journey to the other side of grief.
