The most difficult time for a family is after the funeral, when everyone is gone. Family and friends have returned to their daily lives, and now you are alone with a large part of your life missing. It is difficult for everyone to find a way to manage grief on a daily basis. Sometimes it seems impossible that there might be someone out there that knows how you feel, and has some tools for you to use. As an ongoing part of our support for families, we suggest these books to you as a place to start. You may find them at your local library, or at www.amazon.com.
