I wrote this book after losing my wife of 40 years, Jan, to ovarian cancer. It has given comfort to hundreds of people experiencing loss. It was also a major part of my own healing.…

Releasing Grief

Talking is a helpful release....talking to someone that will sincerely listens helps...."that true companion" (Proverbs 17: 17),,, Especially if someone has experience a similiar loss....I lost my grand parents at an early age and I have very fond memories of them.. I have not found many who have lost their grand parents at an early age though,,,,Writing also helps...but the fact that there are folks that are willing to listen helps.

Loss of a Co- Worker - K. Brown

I just lost a co-worker two days of ago. He died of a brain tumor. Now, I  remember the happiness he brought to our unit. My heart goes out to his family because he was so young....You never know what folks are going through until something bad happens.......I try my best to treat people like I want to be treated. Hopefully, his name will be in the local news paper because he knew so many.....Revelation 21:3,4

Has anyone tried Grief Support Groups?

I am thinking about going to a grief support group because I know I need help to make it thru this.  Would anyone like to share what type of support group you went to - one at a church, at a hospital, individual counselor or ??  I am not sure what to expect at one of these and am pretty nervous.  I don't want to fall apart and just cry the whole time.

Suicide - How To Help the Bereaved

It happened again in my community. A young man died by suicide. No matter how many times it happens, suicide is a sudden, unexpected, and tragic death that leaves the bereaved and the community badly shaken.

The bereaved not only feel the raw grief of sudden loss, but may wrestle with the question, over and over…

I WAITED A LONG TIME BUT I FOUND THIS SITE

Hi I am Scott.  I widowed 2 1/2 years ago.  I have recently realized that I am grieving late or maybe there is no real time and it will probably go on indefinitely.  Sometimes I wonder which is harder; the loss of Skip or the hell that we went through for the year prior.  It does not change anything but I think about it.  Where was the payback for being on top of all the care giving and making so many decisions and all that?   I sometimes feel so CHEATED which at first makes me feel selfish…

Hi Everyone

I am new to this so not sure how it all works.  My name is Marty and I lost my husband on March 22, 2016.  I am having a hard time accepting that it really happened.  I have had so many people tell me they know how I feel but unless they have also lost their spouse I really don't think they have any idea of what it feels like to have a broken heart.  I am hoping by being on here with others that have suffered the same loss will help me.

Long Suffering- Helps Me Balance My Distress

When we are distraught every little thing some one may do may get under our skin but the quality of long suffering helps.

Long suffering is needed to keep us on our Godly path

It let's our heart be tranquil

It finds the good in others

Always hoping for the best

It helps us keep balance

Even though we are distress......

(Galatians 5:22)

Missing Dad on Father's Day

It’s been over five decades since my father died; so long that the searing pain following his death is a distant memory. I’ve lived my life without him and I long ago left behind any yearning for the experiences I’ve missed.

That’s not to say there is no sadness in his death, but I have accepted it and moved on. And yet…
