comfort for the grieving
on April 4, 2010
Stunning book. This was my second book by George Anderson and I enjoyed it just as much as his book We Don't Die. By the end of the book I felt that the souls were as real to me as they are to George. This book makes sense of the what is the worse time in our life, the death of someone we love. Instead of death being the ending we all expect, George gave me faith that it's really just the beginning for those who leave us. And that death is actually when we take up our real lives again, leaving behind this 'veil of tears' we call Earth. Having lost a son, this book was particularly important to me. I especially found comfort in the way the souls who have left us, find ways to comfort us. In the eight months since our son's death, every time I've been particularly down, something or someone steps in to give me just what I need to keep going and to even find joy.
George Anderson may be out of reach for me, but his book is not and in it I felt the presence of the souls that came through George to comfort others. It helps tremendously to hear stories of the grieving parents who have spoken to their loved ones through George. What a gift George brings to us all.
