10 family members in about as many years and this book helped alot in my life. Have lost children, grandchildren,
parents, spouse, nieces, sister-in-law, too many to list. At least one a year since 2010 and some years, 2.
This book really helped.
Someone we care about very much just lost his wife suddenly. I thought he should have something that would assure him all the "crazy" feelings he was having were actually pretty normal in this terrible time. I wanted to be sure the book neither judged people for how they honestly felt, nor sugar coated the real pain of grief. This book is honest, tells it like it is, and addresses multiple circumstances, such as sudden illness, accidents, soldiers, suicide and more. Additionally it acknowledges differing relationships to the lost loved one: What children may experience, or siblings, or parents, or even friends. Toward the back are multiple suggestions for how to cope and additional resources (written and groups) to help you through the process.
It also provides a list of other resources and support for those that are grieving. Of particular interest in the book are suggestions for coping and learning to get through day to day life and difficult meaningful days such as birthdays, special anniversaries, weddings, holidays, etc.
I lost a good friend of many years suddenly in 2012 and had I known about the book at that time, I believe it would have been extremely beneficial in helping me cope with her loss. But even in reading the book one and a half years later, I felt it was beneficial to me.
As a Hospice volunteer I occasionally add various grief books to my library. Although those patients and families connected with Hospice hopefully are able to prepare for death (to some degree), this book would be good just for the resources, support and coping methods listed. This is definitely a book I have added to my library for future reference. I don't know if it would be as helpful getting it right after the death occurs or as a gift a few weeks after everyone has gone back to their normal lives and the person(s) experiencing the death is left to fend on their own.
