These are lessons on living that come direct from experience, lessons we all need. I hope this book reaches many, touching hearts and infusing us all with its wisdom. --- Ellen Bass, Co-author of The Courage to Heal.

We see, hear, know and think about death almost every day of our lives. We see and hear it on TV, radio and movies. We read about it in newspapers, on the Internet and in non-fiction and fictional books. We know it with every personal change and loss we experience. And we think about it consciously or unconsciously when the reality of mortality hits home. Good Grief - Love, Loss & Laughter is a collection of commentaries, stories and true-life events from the highly acclaimed newspaper column Good Grief. These are not your run-of-the-mill Ms. Manners type advice letters, though some are surprising and humorous. Good Grief includes real people, diverse circumstances and practical solutions. You won't find a lot of theoretical, academic or know-it-all poppycock in this concise collection, nor will the reader be required to wade through a textbook of dogmatic cliches. This work makes it easy to access an area of interest and discover down to earth, tried and true exercises, suggestions and solutions for living with loss. Some of the life and death issues presented in these pages include expected or sudden loss; male and female reactions; funerals; personal choices; pet loss; loss of a child; suicide; intimacy after loss; and keeping those who have died present in our lives.
