“I wish I would have been able to read this grief guide/dictionary when I was early on in the loss. Now I have a better understanding of the reasons why I felt left alone by that the people surrounding me left me alone.”Amelie, bereaved mother of Sophie
“Even though I have been working in grief recovery for a long time, I still felt unsure when to say what to be truly helpful. Reading this book helped me know when to say what and also, how to support myself.Stacey, Grief counsellor
“Working as a NICU nurse I’m in contact with bereaved parents from time to time. This book really opened my eyes to the importance of early support in order to enable the parents to set one foot in front of the other on their grieving journey.Joy, NICU nurse
“In the interest of full disclosure, those who read this review need to know that I worked with Nathalie as the editor/writing coach for this book. But it is not in that capacity in which I offer these comments. The majority of my professional life has been spent as a parish pastor, a hospice chaplain, and a hospital chaplain. As a religious “professional”, I have been with families, clients, patients, parishioners and friends at all stages in the journey to death. Of course, I’ve also experienced the deaths of my mother, father, sister, brother, cousins, uncles, aunts, grandparents and even a great nephew. In some of these instances, I officiated at the funeral. I can state unequivocally that Nathalie has provided in this book solid information and insight to help professionals and individuals in their journeys through grief. Her definitions are masterfully spot on. Her descriptions of feelings and thoughts of those engaged in grief and mourning ring absolutely true based upon my own experiences as one who has grieved as well as one who has given many hours providing support. All who choose to read Bridging the Grief Gap will gain exceedingly valuable insights and tools in dealing with death and grief.”Tim Morrison, DMin, ND
