Used for years by individuals, grief counselors, and support groups, Roses in December has helped readers understand the grieving process, support family members, give insight into sibling grief, and maintain their marriages during difficult times. This newly revised edition offers the same compassion and encouragement plus chapters on losing loved ones under special circumstances, such as suicide and AIDS.
As a speaker and workshop leader for Compassionate Friends Marilyn Willett Heavilin book, Roses in December will be the "hope" parents need after the loss of a child. However, this book speaks to any loss.
With deep empathy, Marilyn helps those who are grieving find God’s comfort. Having lost three sons, she knows the tremendous sorrows and struggles that come with the death of loved ones. Yet she shares how even in the winters of our lives God provides roses — special occasions, special people, and special memories — to give us strength and draw close to Him.
"Roses in December" is one of the most emotional and yet articulate and informative books I've read" - Diana Cunningham, Former Executive Director, The Compassionate Friends
