Many are husbands or wives who reach for the missing partner on the other side of the bed, only to feel the cool, empty sheets. Others are children, young and old, who suddenly realize that their hero is gone, leaving the world a strange, uncomfortable, somewhat menacing place. Some are parents whose plans and dreams fade away as they watch their child slip out of their arms into the arms of God. Dr. Barber writes separately about each age group (toddlers, young children, older children, and teens) that faces the loss of a parent. He also has some very practical advice for widows and widowers, for those who re-marry and for those who blend children of both surviving parents into one new family. Do you have a grieving heart? Is there a friend whose eyes well up with tears at the thought of their lost loved one? Take the gentle, caring words offered in Through the Valley of Tears and apply them wherever they are needed.
