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.

This book has a lot of value and a lot of practical advise, but she goes on and on about how much support they had and how much support we will all have when faced with this nightmare. I never had one meal delivered, no one was there to help with my grandson whom I'm raising. I live over an hour away from where I grew up and most of my friends and family still live, so all this did was made me feel more alone. Another point I'd like to make is that she is trying to help the grieving parents as well as those trying to support grieving parents. Maybe she needs to write a second book for support people or, if she feels it needs to be said in the same book, maybe she could have one section in the back for those who want to know how to help. Good book, but not great.

In 2007 I lost my niece, who was like a daughter to me,to domestic violence. During a greif counseling session the counselor advise me to read this book. This writer gives you hope that through Christ you can have a whole life again. This book is instrumental as I am still going through my healing process.

I have since given this book to my sister and other that have lost loved ones and feel there is no Hope.

My sister recently passed away at the age of 31, and a friend of hers gave this book to our family. This friend had come across 'Roses in December' when her brother had passed away at a young age too, and she said it truly helped her family through that tragic time. I'm so grateful that she introduced us to this book because the author described very well the emotions and thoughts that we go through when we lose someone who's irreplaceable, unforgettable, and so loved/dear to us. My mother, my sisters and I have all read it now and want to give a copy to everyone we know. If you or someone you know has lost someone, this book is a great help. I cannot say enough about it, just get it!
