Gone But Not Lost: Grieving The Death Of A Child

We all expect our parents to precede us in death. No one expects to have to make their child's funeral arrangements. And the loss of a child brings with it a special and persistent manifestation of grief that can feel "like a stomachache that never ends."Gone but Not Lost is a thoughtful gift for a family that has experienced the death of a child. Each of its brief chapters covers one element of grieving, bringing readers through sorrow and helping them deal with feelings of anger or guilt, as well as the marital strain that may follow the loss of a beloved child.

Written with the Bible as a comfort zone, this book answers a lot of questions that you have about the death of your child. Having a child that died in an auto wreck and being a divorced parent, I have had no close human companionship to help me through these rough days. I am just now able to pick up the book and read it after receiving it 6 months ago. This book has helped me through many lonely times and answered many many questions. After the inital shock wears off and the questions go unanswered, this book will give you the insight that you need. You may not be able to read it initally but I promise when the time comes - you will be able to pick it up and read it. Relief is what this book offers. You can take it or leave it but you need to read it. It is wonderfully written and cuts deep. I am able to pick it up and read a couple of chapters, cry, pick it up again and continue on. My life is looking up and this book has helped. Thank you Mr. Wiersbe for helping me see brighter days.

This book was recommended to me by a good friend who had survived the death of her daughter in a car accident. I had been searching for a book on grief since the loss of my wonderful 20-year-old son, Adam, in a car accident on March 1, 2002. So many books overwhelmed me with too much information.Gone But Not Lost gave me simplified, practical advice combined with scriptures. Surviving the death of a child leaves us in a surreal state and our attention span is almost non-existent. These shorter chapters allowed me to read and heal at my own pace without getting bogged down in long, wordy chapters.I highly recommend David W. Wiersbe's book to all who have lost a child of any age.

I especially find the three page chapter on Marriage to be of grave importance! It is a known fact that the death of a child destroys marriages because the pain is so grave and often occupancies such distance. In less than three pages, he has given details to save one's marriage during such a loss. And I can attest that what he says is so true!

My son passed away at age 23 unexpectedly and i've been in shock since. a friend gave me this book and i set it down and didnt really think about it for weeks, i wondered into the corner where the book was and picked it up, That book helped me think more clearly and gave me alot to think about and settle somethings. Just made me feel like i was not going crazy,,,,.

Anyone who has lost a child, no matter what age, this is a must read. The chapters are only 1-2 pages long so your mind is able to grasp the content. The author really touches on every emotion and question a grieving parent is feeling and dealing with the first few months after their tragic loss. This is a must read for all grieving parents.

Wonderful book. Ordered for a parent that lost her child. I was given one when my son passed away & it so helped me. Short book that has so many endearing things in it. I can read it over & over. God Bless. Quick delivery. Thanks.

Good reading for a parent who has lost a child. Comforting. Good gift to give someone who has lost a child also.

I have had to purchase several copies because once I assign it to grieving clients, I never get it back, and I'm fine with that. This book has allowd may parents who have lost their children to deal with the grief more effectively. It allows for more understanding of what they are going through and it helps them to know they are not alone in the grieving process.
