"A well written book about a very difficult subject. This book will be extremely useful for those going through these difficult times." -- Bradley Evans, MD,Cardiologist, Providence, Portland
"As one who deals with unexpected death, I am so pleased to find a truly valuable reference for those souls who are blindsided by such misery...The book is thoughtful, thorough and intensely meaningful. Up until now, Rabbi Kushner's reference WHY BAD THINGS HAPPEN TO GOOD PEOPLE has been my mainstay in such circumstances; I will add this book to my recommended list." -- E. Charles Douville, MD, Cardiothoracic Surgeon, Providence Portland
"I Wasn't Ready to Say Goodbye is a book that is easily related to by anyone struggling to cope with the sudden death of a loved one. I highly recommend this book, not only to the bereaved, but to friends and counselors as well. If you want to experience what the pain of grief is like, to better understand what the bereaved are going through, read this book." -- Helen Fitzgerald, author of The Greiving Child, The Mourning Handbook and The Grieving Teen
"The authors have captured a means of discussing, exploring, elucidating a very painful life passage in real life, down to earth language and experience. Many thanks to Pam and Brook for...the generosity in sharing their discoveries to further our healing." -- Charlotte A. Tomaino, PhD, Neuropsychologist
"This book, by women who have done their homework on grief, offers a companion for others still recuperating. Further, it introduces us to so many others, both famous and ordinary, who can hold a hand and comfort a soul through grief's wilderness. Outstanding reference of where to seek other help." -- George C. Kandle, Pastoral Psychologist
