From Eulogy to Joy: A Heartfelt Anthology
From Eulogy to Joy is a unique anthology of thought-provoking personal stories shared from the hearts of people who are "experts" on bereavement - because they have experienced grief firsthand. Through the words of 130 people the book reveals that, contrary to popular belief, we never "get over" the death of someone and actually never should. Rather, death is a life-transforming experience to "get through" and eventually "grow through" to a place of inner peace and renewed joy. Among the contributors are Neale Donald Walsch, Judy Belushi, Dr. Rabbi Earl Grollman, and many others.
