This book gives readers a roadmap to remembering those who have died with more love than pain and shows us how to move forward in a way that honors our loved ones. Despite having a career training others about trauma and grief, author David Kessler’s life was upended by the sudden death of his twenty-one-year-old son. How does a grief expert handle such a tragic loss? He knew he had to find a way through this unexpected, devastating loss, a way that would honor his son. That, ultimately, was the sixth state of grief — meaning. Cover image courtesy of David Kessler.
This book really helped me following the loss of our son. Reading about others who had shared experiences made me feel less alone, and I thought the author was really inspiring in his quest to make meaning out of tragedy.
