An irreverent guide for knowing what to say after someone dies by suicide. Using humor to illustrate her point, Heidi Bryan has written a delightful little book showing people what is and what isn't appropriate to say to someone who has just lost a significant person to suicide.
Grief after suicide is unique and complicated, shrouded in mystery, shame, and stigma. Many people are uncomfortable around the topic and as a result, have no idea how to help a friend or relative who has just lost someone to suicide. Having survived her brother Jeff's suicide, Heidi Bryan experienced firsthand the awkwardness and stigma people felt. Demonstrating that humor does have a place in grief and laughter is possible after losing someone to suicide, she shows the reader what is and what isn't helpful to the friends and family members. Short and easy to read, this book is valuable resource - and makes a great gift, too! (Admit it- we all know someone who could use this book.)
