Who wants to have the need for a book like this? Yet, in our lifetimes we will all experience a loss of some type and Experiencing the Loss of a Family Member by H. Norman Wright is a very good resource for anyone stuck in the mire of grief. From losing a parent, child, sibling, and even pet to helping children with their grief or knowing what to say to a friend.
I got a lot out of the losing a child chapter and was so glad to see that even a year out all my feelings are normal and just a part of grief. The feelings of fog, isolation, memory loss, passing of time. Yep, it's all there and it's all normal. The fact that H. Norman Wright lost a child makes it an even better resource...I know that he knows exactly what I am experiencing. I plan to purchase his book Missing the Child You Love.
I plan to pass this on to someone who experiences a loss in their family as I feel it is helpful to anyone grieving.
