With the help of NUMEROUS people, Bill was able to write this book. Yes, it is a book filled with insightful ideas and direction but at the exploitation of others who grieved along with him.
Bill Jenkins has suffered a loss that few of us will thankfully never know, the traumatic death of a child. Mr. Jenkins has taken his pain and turned into a helpful guide. As a funeral director, I appreciate his research, his conclusions and his desire to reach out to others in similar pain. Caregivers should have a copy. Police Chaplains and others involved in the notification process should have copies of this book available to them. Thank you, Bill Jenkins for turning your pain into help for others.
