We recommend reading the book :"Life after Loss": A Practical Guide to Renewing Your Life after Experiencing Major Loss
by Bob Deits.
"One of the most helpful books on grief and grieving the book advises the reader "Never apologize for grieving." and "The loss I experienced is a major event in my life. Perhaps it is the worst thing that will ever happen to me. But is not the end of my life. I can still have a full and rewarding life. Grief has taught me much, and I will use it to be a better person than I was before my loss."
