    Sent to me as a condolence message, I found it quite a nice, comforting volume I especially was moved by thinking about and rereading the 23rd Psalm Walking though the valley of the shadow of death I had always understood it as referring to risking one s life and having a narrow escape, due to God s assistance or intervention not a very believable piece of magic It had never occurred to me to see it as caring for or accompanying a dying person Seen that way, it is a authentic message of comfort [...]

    Who knew that grief would hurt so much Grief is love not wanting to let go I could keep on quoting and crying This book doesn t grab me as much as Living when a loved on has died but Grollman continues to write things that touch my heart He does not sugar coat, but he provides hope You will never have to go through that ordeal with that person again He does deliver a Jewish slant to the process of grieving I value the slant I m not sure what a Quaker slant would be.

    I read his other book Living When a Loved One Has Died two years ago and found it one of the best books in this area This book was also good.
