When my parents died, I quickly learned what was helpful (friends who listened and were patient), and what wasn’t (people who told me how I felt, preached their beliefs, or avoided the subject completely). It made we wonder about the experiences of others. I interviewed hundreds of people about their losses and asked where they found comfort. I share their answers, secrets, and the top ten things NEVER to say to someone who’s grieving. You’ll never have to feel awkward again when reaching out to someone after a death. Whether you are reaching out to someone who is grieving, or you are the one dealing with the death of someone you loved, this book is for you.
