Feelings of loneliness and depression are familiar to those in mourning. Especially after the sudden loss of a beloved child, hopelessness and despair threaten to engulf those who are left behind by extinguishing their will to live. I can think of no greater resource of comfort and help than Walking With Grief. What a magnificent blending of art and heart, the profoundly insightful poetry of Nanette Geertz together with the deeply sensitive painting of Anne Ierardi! Here is a direct line to the bereaved that will gently guide their heartbreak, encouraging them to live again. --Rabbi Earl A. Grollman DHL DD, author of Living When a Loved One Has Died and Straight Talk about Death for Teenagers
This book is a true gem! --Ann Weems, author of Kneeling in Bethlehem, Kneeling in Jerusalem and many others.
