"This is a handbook to use while you are grieving the loss of a loved one. Keep it close by and let it remind you of what you need to know during this painful time." - from the opening page.

"The remedies for grief are time courage and love... all applied with tenderness."

"You may hear their sounds and see them in the shadows. You will forget they are gone and then remember again, and your heart will break one more time."

"Grief takes just as long as it takes... it a process that may never truly end, but will always change."

"Some moments you may feel intensely alive, remember that life springs from death."
