One of the things we do when someone suffers a loss is offer them books. I think that’s because we all struggle with what to say and it seems like that is at least something that might be helpful.
After John Robert died our friend Tim McCarter sent me a book called Walking With Those That Weep. I had actually met one of the authors in the past. This book is well researched and offers practical suggestions both for those who are grieving and for those who would like to reach out to the bereaved.
I suggest you get it. It’s not a lot of money but it’s a goldmine of information.
And some other books on grief that I think are excellent. Thanks for reading. JD
