Description


The grief books that just "gets it."

Each year about eight million Americans suffer the unexpected death of a loved one. For those who face the challenges of sudden death, the classic guide I Wasn't Ready to Say Goodbye offers a comforting hand to hold, written by two authors who have experienced it firsthand.

Acting as a touchstone of sanity through difficult times, this book covers such difficult topics as:

  • The first few weeks
  • Suicide
  • Death of a Child
  • Children and Grief
  • Funerals and Rituals
  • Physical effects
  • Homicide
  • Depression

Featured on ABC World News, Fox and Friends and many other shows, this book has offered solace to over eight thousand people, ranging from seniors to teenagers and from the newly bereaved those who lost a loved one years ago.

An exploration of unexpected death and its role in the cycle of live, I Wasn't Ready to Say Goodbye provides survivors with a rock-steady anchor from which to weather the storm of pain and begin to rebuild their lives.
