Coping with Grief: A Self-Help Guide
This book is the product of my endeavors to confront the tragic loss that I experienced over three years ago. In my situation, I found some peace and comfort in researching spiritual books and writing about what this new knowledge meant to me. I needed something tangible to bring about a "ray of hope" in my life. In my search of the literature, I found hundreds of books on the subject of grief but there were only 12 recently published books that supported the view of an afterlife, which was important to survivors of a lost loved one. I prepared book notes on all that I read and combined these with information from the public domain relative to the subject of grief and my personal experiences. The feedback that I received from reviewers of the book indicates that it is a good first step in the healing process. It is intended to help people who are attempting to cope with grief so that they can re-start the rest of their life.
