The death of a friend is one of the most significant but unrecognized experiences of grief in American culture. In this unique book, Harold Ivan Smith guides the reader to move with rather than against the natural grief process as he explores its many aspects, including the friending, the passing, the burying, the mourning, the remembering, and the reconciling.

Easy to read

User Review  - Tina Riddle - Christianbook.com

This book is a very easy read - however I was unable to read it all in one sitting. I had to read a little and come back to it later. Otherwise, I would have been a sobbing mess. Overall, it was an excellent book and very helpful. Read full review
