"After my wife died three years ago, I wish I'd had copies of this book to pass on to my friends. Too many advised me on how to grieve, how long to grieve, and things not to do the first year. They meant well; that didn't make them helpful. Like others who grieve, I had to find my own path to healing. Thanks, Gary, for this easy-to-read book. I hope many will read it."
--Cecil Murphey, New York Times bestselling author of more than 130 books, including Gifted Hands: The Ben Carson Story and 90 Minutes in Heaven.
