"LETTING GO WITH LOVE- The Greiving Process" March 13 2002
By "mcsilver@qnet.com" - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio Cassette
In 1992 my husband passed away after a 9 month battle with cancer. The local Hospice gave me "Letting Go With Love". I read and re-read and carried the book everywhere with me to help me through some very bad times. Over the past 10 years I have given 21 of the books away (including my own original) and I beleive every person that looses someone close to them should be given this book as it may help get through the grieving process. Another person does not understand know until they have to go experience it. Many of the people that I have given the book to have said the same thing, how much it helped them. I continue buying this book to give to friends who have lost a loved ones.

A straightforward guide for readers Dec 2 2007
By Midwest Book Review - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Perfect Paperback
Now in a new revised edition, Letting Go With Love: The Grieving Process is a straightforward guide for readers in need by Nancy O'Connor, Ph.D., a psychologist with 20 years of clinical experience. Chapters walk the reader through the stages of grief, learning to accept one's painful feelings, how to cope with the death of a spouse, parents, children, or the inevitable demise of oneself, issues specific to loss through suicide or catastrophic death, and much more. "A child is vulnerable at any age when a parent dies. If the parent-child relationship has never progressed to an adult-to-adult relationship, then all of the childhood fears of being abandoned will be reactivated, no matter how old the child is. The same feelings may be experienced at the death of a stepparent, grandparent or guardian who was a significant person in the child's upbringing." Highly recommended.

A truly compassionate and helpful book Aug. 26 2010
By Wynne Brown - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Perfect Paperback
In an ideal world, I would never have had the need to read this book. But sometimes life falls far short of ideal.
Three months ago, our son made the choice to take his own life. I've read all of Letting Go With Love once -- and the section on suicide many times. O'Connor's tone is just right: matter-of-fact while still compassionate, supportive but not overly sentimental, wise but not bossy. She also gives enough details of her own losses to let the reader know this IS a woman who knows grief's pain. Yet, she keeps the focus on the reader, not herself.
There are a lot of books on grief out there. For me, Letting Go With Love: The Grieving Process-Revised Edition is the best.

Letting Go With Love, by Nancy O'Connor (audio cassette) Feb. 7 2000
By T Connelly - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio Cassette
Soon after my wife died, at the young age of 31, my sister-in-law gave me this audio cassette. She said a friend recommended it to her. What a comfort it was listening to Dr. O'Connor's voice. She spoke directly to me in my grieving process; it was so helpful to understand the different stages after 1 month, 6 months, etc. I passed the tape along to family to help them understand. My wife died 9 years ago. I know the wisdom of Dr. O'Connor helped me move forward in my life (with therapy also), going through, not around, the grieving process.
