    A friend gave me this book after I lost my brother to suicide and it was very helpful. Difficult to read at times only because of my own grief. Encouraging, true stories from real people who are hurting just as much as I was.

    THE best book I have found for those who survive the loss of a loved one by suicide. It is both practical and encouraging. I keep several on hand to give away. I send them to people who don't know me but have a need. The best thing we can do to comfort anyone is to point them to Jesus and His Comforter.

    Very helpful!! Very smart, easy to read book.I felt like I related to every person in the book. Survivors of suicide suffer such a unique pain, hard to explain to others.I loved all the scripture references too.
