Sorry For Your Loss: What People Who Are Grieving Wish You Knew

Overview

“When I ask people who are grieving what comforts them, nearly every single person gives the same answer. ‘Someone to listen.’ The same three words, over and over and over again. Someone to listen.

Meet the Author

Alicia King writes from the unique perspective of one who has lost many of those close to her. Her mother’s death was suspicious enough to launch a homicide investigation and lengthy legal rollercoaster. This ultimately led to a sentence of more than 15 years for her mother’s boyfriend. During the next eight years she would lose her grandmother, step-father, step-mother, and father, as well as miscarrying in her second trimester while awaiting her mother’s boyfriend’s trial. Ms. King currently lives in Franklin, Tennessee, with her husband, Dan, and their two children. She is a world-class worrier, earning her the nickname, the Queen of Concern. She is also an award-winning songwriter, writing mostly for film and TV.
