by Juanita White
This book validates the special experiences adults grieving the deaths of older children have. The author, who experienced the death of an adult son, realized there was a lack of understanding and written materials related to this profound loss.
In order to write this book White researched, attended grief meetings and interviewed parents whose older children, ranging in age from 19 to 47, died. Their deaths were from accidents, murder, suicide, and both short and prolonged illness. Never Too Old for a Lullaby includes what these parents did to help themselves live and grow through and beyond their loss. Included are ideas for meaning making through memory books, memory trees, holidays and special days.
Paperback booklet, 30 pages.
