The Author, Ron Gaber:
Parents are increasingly outliving their children. This book
is based on research conducted with 70 parents who have lost one
or more adult children. The book is designed to help other parents
and families who have lost adult children. Our research shows
that losing an adult child produces an ever-lasting and intense
grief that needs attention. The book examines how parents feel,
cope and search for meaning. Personal testimonials describe how
families and friends have and have not helped. Surviving parents
offer advice to others who have lost their adult children. The
book is easy to read and designed in a style that allows for refelection,
meditation and healing.
Rev. Dr. Richard B. Gilbert, The World Pastoral Care Center
This book is an invitation, a verbal hug, from cover to cover,
meeting us wherever we find ourselves on this particular journey.
Beautifully written, handsomely displayed, thoughtfully closed
with helpful resource information. This is essential reading and
comfort for an often forgotten group of grievers.
