The death of a loved one is a time of great strain and more than a little confusion. Yet there are matters that must be attended to precisely at this time when survivors are not in the best condition to make important decisions. This gentle and sensitive book deals with matters mundane and monumental and offers cogent advice on both. Concerns such as grief resolution are treated caringly as well as questions of what to do if an autopsy is deemed necessary. There is even a chapter on dealing with the death of a pet and another about dealing with a death that has become a media event. Simply put, this book is a comprehensive treatment of the confusing situation of the recently bereaved and a most valuable resource for dealing with a situation that most of us will have to face at least once or twice in our lives. This, then, is a rare quantity: a practical how-to guide truly deserving of that designation. Mike Tribby --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
A wonderful book that will be of great assistance to so many people. --Robert M. Fells, Esq., General Counsel, International Cemetery and Funeral Association
Should be available for veterinary hospitals and be beneficial to pet owners. --Dr. Lauren Bauer, DVM, Carlsbad Animal Hospital
It is the most thorough, practical volume on dealing with death, grief and recovery I have seen. --Pastor Joe Slaughter, Hillcrest Church, Dallas, Texas

"What to Do When A Loved One Dies" is a no-nonsense yet compassionate journey through what, for most of us, will be a confusing and emotionally challenging time. I found every section of this book full of practical information that anyone would find extremely helpful when faced with the death, or impending death, of a loved one.
Dr. Shaw's considerable knowledge of the subject as well as her concern for the individual shines through on nearly every page of her book. With sections as diverse as "The Death of a Child," and "Grief," to "Preparing Children for the Death of A Loved One" or "The Death of a Pet" and even "What to Wear to an Interview" there is, bound within the pages of this work, something everyone will find useful.
I would urge everyone read "What to Do When A Loved One Dies" and to do so before facing this crisis if at all possible. In retrospect I wish I had.

I've very excited about it and invite those who have been searching for the book or to buy a replacement after giving their copy away, to contact the publisher. Pre-press orders may be discounted. Thank you so much for the support of this much-needed guide to dealing with death on life's terms. It truly can help you survive the lost of a loved one.
Simply put, this book gives practical advice for dealing with the journey of grief.
Respectfully, Eva Shaw, Ph.D.
