Living When a Loved One Has Died
When someone you love dies, Earl Grollman writes, "there is no way to predict how you will feel. The reactions of grief are not like recipes, with given ingredients, and certain results. . . . Grief is universal. At the same time it is extremely personal. Heal in your own way." If someone you know is grieving, Living When a Loved One Has Died can help. Author Rabbi Earl Grollman (an internationally recognized bereavement counselor) explains what emotions to expect when mourning, what pitfalls to avoid, and how to work through feelings of loss.
