Publisher's Summary

It's been said the first year of a loved one passing is the hardest. The grieving person can find the first year of anniversaries, birthdays, holidays, and adjusting to life particularly painful. The stories of others going through this process can be a source of comfort and common ground. Letters for Dad: A Year of Grieving Since You've Been Gone is a personal account of the grieving process in the first year of an adult son losing his dad. The book is a collection of letters written to a deceased dad. The letters have been transcribed from the son's journal given to him by friends as a gift after his dad passed away. The letters are one-way conversations expressing the feelings many have after the loss of a loved one. This work is a short and personal one because these letters were written on anniversaries, holidays, and birthdays when emotions and memories are the strongest. This is not a "feel good" book, but rather, a book filled with feelings.

Listen to these letters to go through someone else's dreams of the deceased, thoughts on death, and bouts with depression.

Listen to these letters to glance at another person's grief, struggles with faith, and stress over finances.

Listen to these letters about estrangement from the recently deceased, regret, resentment and sibling conflict.

Listen to these letters to unravel a personal account of relating to a surviving parent, relating to a romantic partner, and returning to work.

Listen to these letters for a companion in the first year of grieving a loved one.

Personal and Powerful

The author presents a transparent look into the nuances of death as it relates to the passing of his father. He openly grapples with the tugs of war many of us contend with, while reconciling what was, what is, and what might’ve been- with Dad in hand, and in heart.
