all in one resource for grief.

Not to be the barer of bad news. But nothing lasts forever, people included. Many of you have dealt with the loss of loved ones. My grandpa died over two years ago and my grandma still cries when she walks into her empty house. When the person who you love most in this life dies, you die too. Author Melissa Dalton-Bradford writes honestly about the loss of her son, Parker in On Loss and Living Onward: Collected Voices for the Grieving and Those Who Would Mourn with Them. She doesn't get into the right or wrong way to mourn, or really try to give you much advice on how you should be handling your loss. This book includes her personal essays about HER loss. In a way, it feels like she is mourning with you. If that makes any sense. As you read you will feel her pain from the loss of her child, and it's as if you're moving through the grieving process with Melissa. Included are quotes and scripture that you will be able to relate to regardless of the relationship between you and your lost loved one. This resource is sure to comfort you in times of sorrow, and I sure hope it helps the ache in your heart lessen and eventually disappear.
