Overview

Used for years by individuals, grief counselors, and support groups, Roses in December has helped readers understand the grieving process, support family members, give insight into sibling grief, and maintain their marriages during difficult times. This newly revised edition offers the same compassion and encouragement plus chapters on losing loved ones under special circumstances, such as suicide and AIDS.

With deep empathy, Marilyn helps those who are grieving find God's comfort. Having lost three sons, she knows the tremendous sorrows and struggles that come with the death of loved ones. Yet she shares how even in the winters of our lives God provides roses-special occasions, special people, and special memories-to give us strength and draw close to Him.

I read this book thirteen years ago after the death of my beloved son Stuart Patrick. I was at a very serious low in my life, and I didn't care if I lived or died. A friend gave me this book, I read it and decided if this wonderful woman could go on after losing three sons, I could surly go on after losing my son. I would strongly advise anyone who has lost a child, and is feeling like they just can't go through it, to get this book and read it over and over again. It will make you see that you CAN go on, and it WILL get better. If you ever need to talk to someone who knows how you are feeling, just email me, and I will try to help you get through this awful time in your life.

i had been to my local library looking for 'how to deal with my loss'. After not being able to find anything at the library, i was given this book by our hospice provider after losing my grandfather. The man that i cared about was no longer with me and i was unsure how to feel or deal with the emotions. Although i am not done with the book, it has been a great comfort day in and day out to open the book and read what i am going through is 'normal'. i have recomended the book to many people that are going through some of the things that i am.

I was given this book when my only child was killed in a car accident. This book touched my heart. It makes you realize there are other people in the world who feel just like you do. Great book to read when you have lost a child. The book gives you hope, strength and courage to go on with your life.
