Gravity of Greif

No one can truly understand grief until they’ve been forced to trudge down it’s darkened murky path.  More than death, grief encompasses loss. Loss of a loved one, loss of a relationship, loss of a job, loss of a dream. This book talks about loss.  I have endured loss on many fronts, the apex of which was the loss of our beautiful daughter Savannah Rose.  Grief sucks you in and holds you down.  How can we overcome the Gravity of Grief?
