Tending the garden of memories : a companion for grieving parents

Image of item
" Grief is more than an emotion; it’s an all-encompassing state of being. It invades every aspect of life from morning till night. Every person in the world experiences grief at some point, but everyone lives it differently. And hardly anyone talks about it. The loss of a child triggers a distinct type of grief, as you long for the child of the past and the adult of the future. Children are the embodiment of hope, children have the potential to be wishes come true. A child’s death is shattering. What on earth are we supposed to do when we lose a child? Nobody knows for sure. This is not a how-to book, a self-help book, or a therapy book. This is exactly what it says in the title: a companion. As a parent who has suffered the loss of a child, the author walks beside you, offering a hand to hold and a shoulder to cry on. When you feel like you’re alone and nobody understands, pick up this book and read a page or two. Then you’ll remember: we’re in this together." -- Back cover.
