Good Grief

Over the past few years we have heard from many of you. Dealing with grief is not easy, So many of you have had amazing ideas to help remember your loved one. We have heard your stories, ideas and tips. We have been blown away by the incredible love many of you have shared and the tributes and foundations you have started in their memory. Some ideas were so simple, some complex, but they all helped you thorough a difficult time. These important ideas can help so many others just beginning their journey and illustrate that their is life after loss. We knew we couldn't let this important information pass, and so decided to collate a book, 'Good Grief', 365 ways through the first year of grief. We hope that by sharing your ideas you can find some peace and for others reading the ideas they can begin their journey knowing they are not alone.
