Companion in Grief offers help from a respectful place of experience without the presumption of religion. For grievers with short attention spans, the straightforward paragraphs on non-clinical concepts are a welcome respite. "Companion" directs a griever's attention away from pain by focusing on the larger picture of transitions that are constant in our lives; it brings comfort by guiding the reader to an awareness of the ongoing connection to those they've loved and lost; and it provides steps through simple, practical activities that foster the strength we all have to construct our own healing.
