In 1985, John and Mairi Bramblett's youngest child, two-year-old Christopher, died in an accident, leaving them and their three older children devastated by shock and grief. Four months later, John began writing this deeply moving and honest story of how he and his family coped with the nearly unbearable pain of losing their son.
WHEN GOOD-BYE IS FOREVER walks us along the author's path to acceptance and recovery, taking us through the first hours and days of the tragedy, the painful but necessary first outings, and such occasions as Christopher's birthday, and the anniversary of his death. Mairi and the children share their responses to the tragedy as well, showing us the effect such a tragedy can have on the whole family.
WHEN GOOD-BYE IS FOREVER is also a guide for relatives and friends who wish to discover when and how to aid the bereaved. Everyone who has lost a beloved child will find something for themselves in this generous book. It speaks to every bereaved person's grief, guilt, anger, and pain -- and helps open the way to healing and peace.
