Will Your Grief Ever End?
It’s a tragedy that you wouldn’t wish on your worst enemy. But it has
befallen you. Death has taken your loved one, and your life, and your
heart is shattered forever. Everything, everyone, places, events, and the
smallest of things remind you of your beloved, and just when you think you
are OK, you find yourself crying in a mall because a song triggered that
lovely memory of what used to be, and how you long for those times. You
miss your loved one so much that you feel like you’re going crazy.
Right now, it may not seem like it will ever end but somehow, miraculously,
it does get better. Your healing is in your hands, and holding on to God’s
hands through the grief process helps even more.
In this book, you will learn:
• It’s OK to cry.
• What you’re feeling right now – it’s normal.
• The importance of grieving.
• The importance of laughing.
• There’s no use dwelling on the “what ifs.”
• Funeral Etiquette 101.

How do you cope with seeing a loved one’s life erased by Alzheimer’s?
Cindy Reynes took up a second degree to become a nurse. But when her mother got afflicted with Alzheimer’s disease, she chose not to practice her profession and instead become her mom’s primary caregiver. While caring for her mom, she faced the greatest challenge a daughter can have: to keep loving and honoring a parent who no longer remembers her — one who was fast becoming a stranger.
She captured the heartwarming and, at times, heartbreaking stories in a journal that has now evolved into the book you now hold in your hands.
In these pages, Cindy shares her painfully honest, humorous, and poignant struggles as a care partner of her mom afflicted with this progressive disease.
This chronicle of her pilgrimage from denial to acceptance, resentment to forgiveness, and heartbreak to unconditional love also offers practical tips on how you can care for your loved ones in sickness or in health.
