How does one Face Death and Grief?

This topic has been rolling around in my head for a few years now. I know there are books on top of books on this subject. However, I want to take it to a new level. I want to have an honest conversation about death, dealing with death and the grief that follows and what should happen but doesn’t always happen.

So with this thought in mind I have started a new book titled “Pennies from Heaven” it is still in the rough stage and I am looking for those of you who wish to contribute maybe a small story. There will be no compensation and if you do not want you real name used that is okay as well. I don’t care if you think you can’t write well, or spell well or whatever, that is minor, it can be cleaned up. I want heartfelt stories that tell how you felt then and now. I don’t care if you are still angry, hurt, have moved on or not.

This is a personal journey for me. In the last eight years I have lost six family members and a couple of close friends – this is my way of saying good by and a cleansing of my heart of the pain and loss. No, I will never get over it no one does. They will be forever in my heart and memories. There is a hole however, the pain is abating.

Maybe this will be a catharsis for you. Maybe it is just the thing you need to begin the healing process. Maybe you have been running in place and didn’t know it. Maybe you have not yet really grieved and if that is the case you cannot move forward. You are stuck in the time frame of that person’s death. It is time to let that go- it is time to allow that person to make that final transition- maybe it is time for you to learn how to live again – No one who has already gone wants those they have left behind to stand in one place. They want you to continue to live the best life you can. This is your opportunity to do that.

So again, there will be NO monetary compensation- however, if you wish a signed copy of the book once it is published that can be arranged.

If you are interested you can email me at with your story. The only thing I ask is this if you do not want you name used- please write the story using either initials or a fake name and let me know that is what you are doing.
