This paperback is a follow-up to May I Walk You Home where Joyce Hutchison and Joyce Rupp presented stories and prayers to strengthen and guide caregivers of the very ill. Here Hutchison presents stories of grief and Rupp adds meditations and prayers after each one. Another section contains the stories of others on mourning.

Some of the topics covered in this helpful and succinct overview of grief are the feeling that nothing about life is familiar, the unease resulting from an empty house, the interruption of a normal life, the impression that others just don't understand, the dreaded first holidays, and the sense that one has lost a part of oneself.
