A Grief Unveiled: One Father's Journey
Through the Loss of a Child
Gregory Floyd, Thomas Howard
It was a lazy afternoon in April, 1995, when the unthinkable happened.
Six-year-old John-Paul, the youngest son of Gregory and Maureen Floyd
was playing in the front lawn with his brother David when both were struck
by an out-of-control car. Rushed to separate hospitals, David survived with
bruises, but John-Paul died instantly. In A Grief Unveiled, Floyd reveals his
heart-breaking journey through the sorrow of losing a young child, as he deals
not only with his own broken heart, but also with the struggle to reconstruct
his role as husband, father, and protector. With rare candor, Floyd captures
the almost indescribable moments of pain as well as the palpable moments of
grace as he openly shares his struggle with the theological why's and the
personal emotions that question the goodness of God. This book is a witness
to the intimate presence of God in the midst of unbearable loss offering hope
to all who struggle.
