Education & Resources
We recommend the following list of resources to deal with grief. There are a few titles listed that deal with grief in general, some more specific to the type of loss, and a few more that talk about Heaven. Learning about grief gave us a sense that what we were feeling was “normal” to the grieving process. And reading books about Heaven gave us hope.
