Gone But Not Forgotten: Memories of our Parents
Losing a parent can rip apart everything that you know about life.
You can feel alone, confused, and wonder if you will ever be whole again.
There is no pat phrase that makes it all go away. What you are feeling is what many others have experienced.
The loss can never be filled but they are not totally gone when we remember them.
Dr. Salvatore Tagliareni lost both of his parents in a ten-month period. His grief and loss led him to seek moments that would bring comfort and joy again. His search was not simple but the memories of those he loved led him to the stories and wonderful recollections of others. In these stories he found the hope and meaning that have sustained him and others. In the recollections, he and others have found ways to embrace again those who gave them life and love.
He had the privilege of studying with Dr. Viktor Frankl, the author of Man’s Search for Meaning. Through the eyes of Dr. Frankl, he learned a great deal about grief and the search to put even the most painful life experiences into meaningful ways to live again.

I absolutely loved this book. It brought tears to my eyes and joy to my heart. My parents became vivid again as I read the stories. I will read and reread this many times.
