"This is a journal about what happened to us.... One night, Dad just died and that was that."
Twins Amy and Allie were eight years old and their brother David was four when their beloved father died suddenly in his sleep. Encouraged and guided by their mother, the three children kept a journal for almost two years. They wrote about the night he died, the funeral, the first week, the first year, the cemetery, their thoughts and feelingsand the future.
Their real-life account is an honest, insightful, and deeply moving perspective on death, its aftermath, and the journey through grief and growth. Previously titled Our Dad Died, this acclaimed book has a fresh new cover.
