Parents and Children, Sisters and Brothers, Husbands, Wives and Partners, Grandparents and Grandchildren Talk About Their Experience of Death and GrievingeBook - 2005
'Death is the elephant in the living room - the huge thing that everyone knows is there but no one mentions ... By letting each of the people in this book tell their story in their own way Clare Jenkins and Judy Merry have shown the individuality of grief ... The stories show, too, that the dead belong to no one. All we possess are those parts of our own stories which we shared with those we grieve for. 'Yet, out of all the unique stories in this intensely compassionate and humane book, comes the understanding that, alone as we are in our grief, such suffering shows us that what matters most in.
