This unique book celebrates a long-term, interracial relationship and details the everyday struggles of a surviving partner trying to carry on in a radically changed world. A Season of Grief chronicles the author's emotional descent after the violent death of his partner of 21 years. Bill Valentine's journal of fear, anger, denial, and loneliness captures the glimmers of hope, moments of serendipity, and mysterious coincidences that emerged from his full-time devotion to grief following the death of Joe Lopes. Lopes died along with 264 others when American Airlines Flight 587 crashed in November 2001 in route to the Dominican Republic. It was the second deadliest accident in U.S. aviation history. He is a word always on my lips as I try to work him into a conversation. He is a memory that I strive to keep alive. So yes, in this sense, he is not gone. But in reality, he is. He is gone as my lover. He is gone as my life partner. He is gone as my soul mate, the only person to whom I periodically bared my soul. He is gone as my best friend, the only person to whom I ever attached that label. So pardon me while I still hang on to the notion that he is not here with me. Pardon me while I cling stubbornly to the insistence that he is gone. Valentine's candid and thoughtful account of his heartbreaking efforts to make sense of his partner's death—and survive in a world without him—is by turns, funny, frightening, sobering, and surprising. In the nine months following the tragedy of Flight 587, Valentine finds every waking moment of his life affected by his partner's absence—from mundane household chores to major life decisions. A Season of Grief is a story told in darkness and light, of hurt and healing, love and loneliness, but mostly, of a man who learns to live with his partner's absence through the persistent, surprising evidence of his presence. Our job on earth is to live with uncertainty, ambiguity, and hope. We

Poignant, inspiring, and encouraging reflections for those who grieve from one who has been there. For Ann Dawson, her "season of grief" came with the death of her 18-year-old son, Andrew, who was killed in a car accident the summer after his high school graduation. As she sought to find meaning in the senselessness of her son's death, Ann looked to the words of others who had grieved the loss of a loved one. In reading numerous books, she came to realize she was not alone in her sorrow, that others had walked this path of grief and transcended the pain. Now in A Season of Grief, she shares this realization with others. This book is a remarkable collection of quotations, personal reflections, and prayers intended for those who find themselves in their own "season of grief." The insights and stories from Ann's own experience are carefully placed along side the comforting and often inspiring words of writers like C.S. Lewis and Kahlil Gibran. Whether you've lost a child, a spouse, a parent, or a friend, A Season of Grief promises to be a comforting companion in the difficult days ahead.

Like life, grief has its own set of seasons. We all will eventually face them head-on, in our own time and at our own pace. No matter what our loss, we must learn how to endure and survive our seasons in order to live fully again. In a memoir that follows the metaphor of the seasons, Ernestine Rose provides an enlightening glimpse into her walk through grief after her beloved husband of forty-one years passed away in 2016. Beginning with the season of summer, Ernestine first recounts the year preceding Art’s death as he bravely battled sarcoidosis and eventually succumbed to the disease. As she leads others through the often cold and lonely seasons of autumn and winter, Ernestine details how she grieved her monumental loss and slowly learned how to live without Art. Finally as she reveals her entrance into spring, Ernestine discloses how she found renewal, hope, and faith in a new beginning while gently reminding others that we all heal in our own time. Seasons is the true story of a widow’s journey through the seasons of grief that shares words of wisdom that will help those in mourning to learn to live, love, and dance again.

Subject: When a loved one dies, the pain of loss can feel unbearable, especially in the case of a traumatizing death that leaves us shouting, 'NO!' with every fiber of our body. The process of grieving can feel wild and nonlinear and often lasts for much longer than other people, the nonbereaved, tell us it should. This book is a companion for life and most difficult times, revealing how grief can open our hearts to connection, compassion, and the very essence of our shared humanity. The author, who is also a bereavement educator, researcher, Zen priest, and leading counselor in the field accompanies the reader along the heartbreaking path of love, loss, and grief. Through moving stories of her encounters with grief over decades of supporting individuals, families, and communities, as well as her own experience with loss, the author opens a space to process, integrate, and deeply honor our grief

A Grief Observed comprises the reflections of the great scholar and Christian on the death of his wife after only a few short years of marriage. Painfully honest in its dissection of his thoughts and feelings, this is a book that details his paralysing grief, bewilderment and sense of loss in simple and moving prose. Invaluable as an insight into the grieving process just as much as it is as an exploration of religious doubt, A Grief Observed will continue to offer its consoling insights to a huge range of readers, as it has for over fifty years.

A guide to achieving wholeness through the process and purpose of grief • Brings new understanding to the profound mystery of loss shared by all human beings • Offers sensitive and practical advice for experiencing grief and how to prepare for the healing journey that follows • Winner of the Independent Publisher Award in 1999 • New edition of Good Grief, published Oct 1995 We grieve only for that which we have loved, and the transient nature of life makes love and loss intimate companions. In Healing Through the Shadow of Loss Deborah Morris Coryell describes grief as the experience of not having anywhere to place our love, of losing a connection, an outlet for our emotion. To heal grief we have to learn how to continue to love in the face of loss. Embracing loss allows us to awaken our most profound connections to other people. Part of the grieving process is finding our place in the world again following a loss. We tend to define ourselves in relation to those we love--as “Laura’s mother,” “Jim’s wife,” or “Stacey’s friend.” The loss of a loved one is jarring to these foundations and can make us question our own sense of reality. In addition, the body must adjust to the sensory changes of having lost a part of our life, a part of our daily existence. Coryell draws attention to our society’s tendency to rank losses in a “hierarchy of grief.” She reminds us that all losses must be grieved in their own right and on their own terms, and that we must honor the “big” losses as well as the “small” ones. Paying attention to even the most minute experiences of loss can help us to be more in tune with our responses to the greater ones, allowing us to once again become part of the rhythm of life from which we have become disconnected.

Together, they created a whole new way to sell products and established one of the largest, most successful companies in the world.
