Not Just for Grandparents 13 April 2000
By Bob Kahn - Published on
Format: Paperback
Ms. Reed does a supurb job of sharing her personal experiences relating to the death of her grandson and her knowledge about the grief process.
I have not experienced the type of loss that Ms. Reed has. I do, however, work with others who have. This book contains much information that could be valuable to anyone who has lost a loved one or knows someone who has.
Besides the valuable information it contains, the book has two other important strengths. First, it contains many references to other books and information sources. Second, and more importantly, it introduces us to an individual we can relate to and care about.
I recommend this book to anyone who wants to have a better understanding of the grief process.

Expensive but Helpful 17 Jan. 2012
By babe5520 - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I am still in the process of reading this. It is such a hard thing to go through and the author hits on many of the problems we face. She has done a lot of research and doesn't get hung up on the religious aspects of losing a grand child. I wish it had a more reasonable price so I could purchase copies for some of the people I know who could benefit from the book.

A Book Perfectly Titled 16 May 2000
By A Customer - Published on
Format: Paperback
Mary Lou Reed writes from the heart to share her personal journey as she navigated the various stages of grief upon the death of her beloved grandson Alex.
Ms. Reed's own struggle to balance the deeply seated need to grieve for Alex against the maternal urge to ease the pain of her son--Alex's father--paints the perfect portrait of the double edged grief that is unique to grandparents.
As informative as a textbook and as heartwrenching as a fine memoir, Mary Lou Reed's sensitive handling of this difficult topic provides a one of a kind sourcebook for the bereaved grandparent.
Bravo Mary Lou!

overpriced. there are other good books much cheaper 11 Nov. 2013
By systems thinker - Published on
Format: Paperback
$45.00 for 127 pages is a bit steep

close to 3x what most books would be priced at
for that size

there are many books on grieving and coping
borrow one free from the library and donate $45
to a charity
