Instead, this small book will teach you your very own way to become an important patch in your friend's healing comforter. 'This sensitive book throws out a lifeline to all of us who know and love someone deep in the waters of grief. How can we help someone in such pain? The author's unique voice carries us to the shores of insight and healing. Take the journey.' -Dr. Leslie Parrott, Founder of RealRelationships.com, Author of You Matter More Than You Think 'I would recommend this book to anyone who knows someone who is grieving.

A book that grounds and clarifies how to travel with someone through the grief process.' -Marigrace Randazzo-Ratliff, MSW LMSW, Psychotherapist
