First published in 1979, this book was Doug Manning's first venture into offering comforting words, heartfelt understanding and encouraging guideposts for people on the grief journey. It began his career as an author and speaker and was the cornerstone of his company, InSight Books.
Doug decided that it was time to update and expand this most beloved book; time to share some of the personal experiences and wisdom gained on his own path to healing, as well as offering stories of struggle and promise from some of the thousands of individuals who have shared their hearts with him. The title remains the same because that phrase is the foundation of all of Doug's work; people need permission and safety to grieve without it being taken away from them.
Doug's hope is that this new edition will provide fresh perspectives, gems of truth, and honest discussions about the universal experience of grief. This is his gift for anyone who shares these pages hoping to understand how to survive the pain of loss and how to ultimately find moments of gratitude and peace on their own grief journey.
