Death is part of life and losing a loved one may be one of the hardest events a person goes through. Even though death is a natural process, often the equally natural process of grief is stifled by ignorant comments, social discomfort or even the selfishness of others. Grief is natural though and as the waves of anguish wash over, it may feel like the pain is so great that coping is almost impossible, or that it continues for so long that normal life won't resume. Experiencing the Loss of a Family Member explores the process of grief offering wisdom, gentle support and reassurance that you are not alone - God walks this path with you.
There are losses of many types, and each loss is different than another. Experiencing the Loss of a Family Member walks you through what grief is, how grief affects us and the different ways that grief occurs as we lose parents, children, siblings and even pets. There are also suggestions for those who want to help a loved one or friend in a loving and supportive manner.
I recommend this book for anyone who has lost someone they love and is looking for reassurance, wisdom and guidance in a nonjudgmental and loving form. I also recommend this book for friends and relatives who want to help someone who is grieving. Experiencing the Loss of a Loved One can show how to be supportive, what to say and more importantly what not to say, and ways to show love and remembrance to the person who has died.
