Dennis L. Apple struggled to reclaim his faith, his marriage, and his personal sanity after the sudden death of his 18 year old son, Denny, in 1991. He has started numerous support groups, and continues to counsel couples and individuals as they struggle to reclaim themselves after the loss of a loved one. For more than 20 years, he has served as Staff Pastor at College Church of the Nazarene in Olathe, Kansas, where he oversees recovery and support groups, senior adult ministry, and hospital visitation. Dennis and his wife, Beulah, live in Olathe, and have an adult son, Andrew.
Sixteen years ago, at 8:20 in the morning, Dennis Apple discovered his son's lifeless body on the family room couch. Eighteen-year-old Denny had died without warning from complications due to Mono.
Life After the Death of My Son shares a glimpse of the unspeakable pain, helplessness, frustration, and eventual healing that Dennis and his wife, Buelah, have experienced over the last 16 years. Using excerpts from his journal, which he began the day after Denny died, Dennis explores the dark, lonely road of grieving for a child. He discloses his anger and disappointment with God, discusses his frustrations with friends and family, and shares how he's dealt with the grief attacks, which continue to sneak up and surprise him. His painful, yet promising story offers comfort and connection to those walking similar journeys. With understanding and compassion, he offers grieving parents insight from 10 lessons he's learned-and continues to learn. His gentle words and honest understanding will guide those with grieving hearts on their difficult journey, giving them hope; and helping them discover the ways God can continue the life of the child they loved and lost.
