I would recommend this journal to anyone who has experienced a loss. I used it for a sudden, unexpected loss of my brother, and this is really the tool that helped me begin to put my emotions into some sort of order after the turmoil of that loss. The questions lead you to answers that you didn't even realize you had issues about and healing slowly but surely begins!
I enjoy each an every page in Phil Rich's, ' Healing Journey' book...I mark the pages with post-it notes that I want to go back and reread. I plan to buy for my sisters; our Mommy died recently... Thanks so much for your book, ' I love it.' Peace M. Saccente- Rochester NY
