I haven't found a book about death and grieving that compares to this one. I highly recommend it not only for those who have lost, but for those close to those who have lost and need some answers. I lost my twin brother tragically at 26 in 1999 and read this book shortly after. It is by far the best. It is honest and real. I often find myself quoting or making reference to it. A heartfelt thank you to the author. You have helped me through some tremendously dark days.

This book helps ease the pain that will eventually touch every one of us. Charlie's words are inspired. No matter what our background or spiritual outlook - this book is a healing aid. It's become my habit to send Charlie's book to any friends or family that are going through grief. My 24 year old son read it and found it helpful after loosing his grandfather. Weeks later, he asked where he could get another copy of the book because he needed to send it to a young woman who lost her dear friend. I can't recommend WHEN THERE ARE NO WORDS highly enough.

My 16 year old daughter, along with her best friend, were killed in a traffic accident just over two months ago. Of all the books given to me during this period, "When There Are No Words" was the only one I could read. The others could not reach my level of grief. This book spoke to me right where I was. I read it, then read it to my husband, he later read it himself. I got a copy for the parents of the other girl killed in the accident. Since reading this book, I have read several others. This one is still my first recommendation for someone who has lost a child.

After losing my son to suicide a year ago, I was recently given a copy of Charlie's book. I read it immediately and contacted him by e-mail to let him know that his book was one of the most comforting books I had read. I am in the counseling field and have had opportunities to study death and counsel others, but I was not prepared for the impact that losing my son had on our family and many around us. Charlie has written to me with the same kind of encouragement that he offers in his book. He is real, practical, and also has published in large enough print that grieving people like me don't have to strain to focus. I plan to purchase several copies to have on hand for others who have experienced loss. I wish I had had his book a year ago when I had difficulty reading anything.

My husband & I lost our 1st son on 10/31/98 in an auto

accident and was given this book from a friend trying

to help us with this tragic loss. It was the turning point

to dealing with our grief. Tragically we lost our only other

son in an accident on 04/24/03. We have been thru grief re-covery classes,read several books on grief but always came

back to this book. Throughout these years we have been able

to help others by giving them this book of encouragement

and understanding during the grief process. If you could

pass this along to the author, Charlie Walton, we would

appreciate this very much! God has given us the Grace to

see us thru the grief process, this book and friends!

Format: Paperback
Written from the perspective of a parent learning to cope with the loss of his sons, this book contains practical suggestions for dealing with the tangible and intangible components of grief. Both the bereaved themselves and those who struggle to help them will find this book useful. Walton describes eloquently the physical, spiritual, psychological, and social effects of grief with descriptions of what is and is not often helpful in coping or helping. Although Walton writes from a Christian perspective, his suggestions are of a universal nature and would be helpful to anyone of any faith.

I loved reading this book! The author was sincere in telling his side of grief. In sharing his story he was very honest about his feelings and very real about what you may experience. He was not here to say that he had all the answers. Infact, he was honest in saying that there may never be answers for certain questions. He gives great advice to the grieving. I would also recommend this book for someone who has a friend that has lost someone. It will help in knowing what to say and do.

I read this book after the death of my mother. It helped me to get a better understanding of the feelings I was experiencing and the gifts I was receiving. So much of what Mr. Walton experienced also happened to me. It was helpful to read about the grief you experience when a love one dies and to know that it is somewhat universal. His book was a great comfort and I read it cover to cover when I picked it up, two months after my mother died.
