GETTING A GRIP ON GRIEF spells out in handbook style what widowers need to accomplish in living through the death of their wives. The first section deals with the time before she dies, when there is a warning, such as in terminal illness. The second part walks a widower through the time of her death, the funeral, and afterwards. So often the survivor needs to know WHAT TO DO NEXT to get through the hardest times. This handbook is candid, specific, and user friendly. Later chapters deal with what the grief process involves and how to rebuild a life without the lost spouse.
