Death... And How To Survive It

A unique, practical and uplifting guide to coming to terms with the loss of your partner

The must-have guide for anyone who has lost a spouse or partner.

'He passed away', 'She's gone', 'He died'
As anyone who has ever lost a loved one will know, the wording doesn't affect the meaning. Nothing can shield you or prepare you for the brutal reality and crippling pain of a death and its repercussions. Kate Boydell was widowed at the age of 33. She felt that her life had lost its purpose and she wanted it to end. But she got through it - and so can everyone. In this down-to-earth, practical, insightful and sometimes humorous guide, Kate draws on her own experience of bereavement to offer frank advice on coping with every aspect of the grieving process. Including:
* coping with the initial shock
* telling your children
* organising the funeral
* shopping and cooking
* getting back into dating
