One Widow’s Story about Living beyond Grief

Irene McGoldrick, MSW

Irene McGoldrick had a premonition in late 2002. Just out of the shower, she stood on the second-floor landing of her home and watched her husband of nine years whisper good night to her toddler son. “Remember this moment, remember right now.” The haunting words seeped into her consciousness like a slow, rolling fog-“this won’t last.” Irene and Bob were living an ordinary life a few months later when a cancer diagnosis shook their world to its core. Through poignant anecdotes that detail the young family’s journey through Bob’s illness-one that takes them to both extreme and alternative measures-Irene weaves an unforgettable narrative inspired by Bob’s journal entries and her own honest storytelling that is heartbreaking, and at times, comical. Eventually forced into widowhood at age thirty-six, Irene shares how she reluctantly embraced single parenthood and began her march through mourning, determined to embrace her grief with intention. Two Chai Day is a compelling true story about embracing love and loss, realizing there can be laughter in the midst of sadness, and learning to appreciate the ambiguity of life.

These songs of love, life and loss were carefully chosen not only to accompany memorial services and support groups but also to uplift and inspire.  Each song is a gem that captures the heart and soul of grief as well as the true meaning of life. Gone Too Soon, the title song, was originally written for a TV broadcast to pay tribute to performers who had died. It was used for tributes to Princess Diana and has won an Emmy and was recorded by Michael Jackson. Often sung for the infants who have died too soon it has become a hymn of love and sweetness.

Paul Alexander recorded this song with the musical writer, Larry Grossman, who accompanied Paul with piano on this very special arrangement.  In addition to the title song, Mama A Rainbow and Dance with My Father celebrates and honors our parents.  I Hope You Dance and Live Like You Were Dying shine on as words of wisdom with unique vocal performances by Paul. For Good, from the musical Wicked, and To Where You are heart-stirring performances that will bring healing to your spirit.

A gentle, practical guide for grieving mothers, family, and friends

by Janice Bell Meisenhelder

*** SPECIAL SALE - WHILE SUPPLIES LAST - 35% OFF ***

Few people understand the grief that comes with losing a child unless they have weathered that situation themselves.

Dr. Janice Bell Meisenhelder has suffered through the loss of a child and knows the almost unbearable sorrow a bereaved mother feels. She has created this gentle guide to help mothers deal with their emotions and begin to heal.

Her guide starts by describing the initial reactions to loss. She shows you the rhythms of grief and the basic emotions you will feel right after the event. She then moves on to handling anger, guilt, envy, and anxiety. As time passes, Meisenhelder warns about triggers and shows mothers how to handle holidays, birthdays, and family events. She offers advice on how to heal spiritually as well as emotionally.

Meisenhelder also prepares you for “tsunami days,” when the loss suddenly hits you all over again. She guides you through these days and on to the second and third year without your child. She encourages you to find ways to honor your child.

In addition to guidance for mothers, Surviving the Unthinkable also contains information for those immediate family and friends who want to understand and support their loved ones during this difficult time.

hardcover

by Camille Gibbs

When Mia learns that her mother has died, all the colour in her world changes to a dreary grey. She feels guilty, angry, sad and lost (sometimes all at once!), and she doesn't know what to do to feel better. Little by little, with the help of her Dad, Mia learns how to cope with her difficult feelings. Together, they remember her mother by creating memory boxes, and they even get rid of anger by crazily sloshing paints and punching holes in newspapers! In the end, Mia finds her own, very special way of coping. When she feels sad or lonely, she looks up to the stars.

Full of practical strategies, this storybook for children aged 5-9 addresses loss, grief and hope. Written from the perspective of Mia who has experienced the sudden death of her mother, it covers the different stages of grief, from initial disbelief, anger and sadness to resolution and hope. The book highlights the importance of giving children the time and space to work through their feelings and provides a host of thoughtful activities to help them cope. It also addresses some of the questions children commonly ask about death.

Uniquely illustrated, this book will be an invaluable resource for anyone supporting a grieving child, especially bereavement counsellors, social workers, teachers and other school staff, as well as parents.

*** NEW, BUT COVERS ARE IN SLIGHTLY WORN CONDITION, SO THIS HAS BEEN DEEP DISCOUNTED - $12.95 RETAIL -- ONLY 1 LEFT***

My life stopped on April 13, 2006. At 6:19 that evening Jimmy, my high school sweetheart and husband of 33 years, died of Burkitt' s Lymphoma. He was sick for barely a month, and had just turned 56. Our daughter and son were grown, and our little granddaughter was two. I worried, Am I going to end up being the grandma in the back seat of the car? But after some time, and a lot of bereavement therapy, I miraculously found myself eagerly anticipating my future more often than I lived in our past. Along the way, I wrote down the small moments that had a big impact on me. Some of them brought me solace, or, as I like to call it, grief relief. Others are moments that stayed with me because they each, somehow in their own way, captured the experience of widowhood. As a comedy writer, I'm wired to be funny, so there's plenty to chuckle about here. Humor is honest, laughing is healing. And though these incidents are from my life, of course, I've come to see that the essence of my story is very much every widow's story. This is what Jimmy said to me when he realized he wasn't going to live, This will be a life-changer for you. It'll be an adventure. Often I say to him in death what I rarely said to him in life, You were right, honey.

Why do people fear death? What is death? Where do we go when we die? What do we need to understand to help us with our fear of death and dying? These and many more fundamental questions of life (who am I; where did I come from; why am I here; what is my purpose?) are addressed to assist the reader in identifying, challenging and changing (if appropriate) their beliefs regarding death and the dying process. Love Never Dies teaches the individual how to: understand and live through the stages of loss; begin and complete the healing process; understand relationships for what they are and become unattached to form and material possessions. This book was written with total respect for all religions, cultures and personal beliefs. The insights provided regarding birth and death, energy and frequencies, cycles of life and the immortality of Spirit that comes from Source, God, and returns to Source will assist the reader in raising consciousness and awareness to the shift that is taking place on the earth plane.

Fascinating true stories and thought-provoking answers about after-death communication

Lynda dreamed of her daughter’s death two years before it happened. When the nightmare came true in 2009, she watched her deceased grandmother guide her daughter safely to heaven. Bonnie’s deceased father smiled and winked at her before disappearing behind a building. Mary saw her deceased mother’s eyes in the face of a stranger. Christine’s dead in-laws appeared in her bedroom one night and stayed for an hour.

Part of the award-winning Grief Diaries series, "Hello From Heaven" explores the true stories of twenty people who experienced the phenomenon known as after-death communication. In addition to the fascinating accounts, readers are treated to an in-depth look at each writer’s beliefs both before and after, forcing even the most steadfast skeptic to entertain the possibility that there is more to life—and death— than meets the eye.

By Guy Dusseault

On June 27, 2004, we received the heartbreaking news that no parent ever wants to hear. Four days before his twenty-ninth birthday, our son, Billy, died in an ATV accident. Billy’s sudden, unexpected death caused my family untold pain and anguish, the likes of which we’d never known. But, through our grief and sorrow, I found a silver lining – dedicating myself to assisting others who have lost loved ones, as well. Helping the bereaved to understand that though death may seem like the end, our loved ones are still very much with us. They send us signs – sometimes subtle - to let us know they are still by our side. They know how much we miss them and feel our love. This book is an inspirational guide to dealing with the loss of a loved one and learning to recognize the many ways they may connect with us.

by Stéphane Gerson

hardcover with book jacket

A haunting chronicle of what endures when the world we know is swept away

 

On a day like any other, on a rafting trip down Utah’s Green River, Stéphane Gerson’s eight-year-old son, Owen, drowned in a spot known as Disaster Falls. That night, as darkness fell, Stéphane huddled in a tent with his wife, Alison, and their older son, Julian, trying to understand what seemed inconceivable. “It’s just the three of us now,” Alison said over the sounds of a light rain and, nearby, the rushing river. “We cannot do it alone. We have to stick together.”

Disaster Falls chronicles the aftermath of that day and their shared determination to stay true to Alison’s resolution. At the heart of the book is an unflinching portrait of a marriage tested. Husband and wife grieve in radically different ways that threaten to isolate each of them in their post-Owen worlds. (“He feels so far,” Stéphane says when Alison shows him a selfie Owen had taken. “He feels so close,” she says.) With beautiful specificity, Stéphane shows how they resist that isolation and reconfigure their marriage from within.

As Stéphane navigates his grief, the memoir expands to explore how society reacts to the death of a child. He depicts the “good death” of his father, which reveals an altogether different perspective on mortality. He excavates the history of the Green River—rife with hazards not mentioned in the rafting company’s brochures. He explores how stories can both memorialize and obscure a person’s life—and how they can rescue us.

Disaster Falls is a powerful account of a life cleaved in two—raw, truthful, and unexpectedly consoling.

Featuring "7 Stages to Recovery"

by Melanie Warner

Grief knows no age. The death of a child is devastating, whether it’s a young mother with a stillborn baby or an elderly father mourning the loss of his middle-aged son from cancer. For parents who have suffered the loss of a child, the path to recovery is often scattered with deep emotional struggle with few known comforts or resources. If you listen to the world’s views, the news for recovery for parents who lost a child can be disheartening: • It’s been estimated that 19% of the world’s population has experienced the loss of a child. That leaves hundreds of millions of families and extended families who are searching for hope through their grief process. • The divorce rate among married couples who experience the loss of a child is on the rise. • Drug or alcohol use is prevalent among parents or siblings who self-medicate to cope. • Suicide from surviving parents or siblings has been steadily increasing. 7 CRITICAL STEPS TO RECOVERY After the loss of a child, rising above the depths of despair and embracing the fullness of life can feel like an impossible feat. I had to learn how to rebuild my life and start over. Through this process, I discovered 7 critical steps that helped me regain my strength and find new purpose in my life. Here is what this workbook can help teach you: • The 7 critical steps towards healing • Practical guidelines and specific steps to help identify emotional patterns • How to trigger an emotional breakthrough so you no longer feel “stuck” • How to finally answer the “why” question • Finding hope again after the loss of a child • How to discover your purpose in 5 minutes • Healing ways to honor your child This guided workbook can be done privately or with a grief group and include discussion with each chapter. Each page includes questions for you to answer, exercises to follow, actions to take and a clear process to follow.
