Death is an experience we all go through. Whether it be that of a parent, a grandparent, friend, neighbour, child or ultimately ourselves. Some people have to deal with these experiences at a very young age – others face this powerful, transformative ordeal later in life. The process however is the same for us all. There is an old saying that goes “It doesn’t matter what happens to you – it only matters how you deal with it”. This book is about the choices one family made.
