It's enviable that all of us will know someone that has lost a dear loved one. I will always remember the most touching expressions of love and support when I lost my son. I wish I could say it applies to everyone who wanted to reach out but then there would be no reason for this book. It's difficult to forget the things said that knocked the wind right out of me. I realized many people don't know what to say or unknowingly say something hurtful or offensive to the grieving. Everyone should know that carefully chosen words are essential to their emotional well being. The time will come when you want to support family, friends, co-workers or even strangers in their time of grief. How do you want to be remembered? What words of comfort can you offer that convey your sincerest condolences? What acts of service can you provide to free up their time for needed privacy? It's human nature to want to empathize with the suffering but more importantly to do it appropriately without causing them further pain. This book was written to help you so that you're remembered for nothing but love and support during this seemingly unbearable time.
