“These green booklets are for first responders to provide to families who have experienced a suicide loss. It’s what I wish someone had given to me and it’s been a personal goal for several years to make this project a reality. I wish no family ever has to go through this, but sadly, many will. My hope is that this little booklet will provide some small amount of comfort and healing."
Booklet size: 6.5" x 4" - 10 pages
Someone close to you has died. Your grief is intensified because the death was a suicide. The healing process will be painful and often seem unnaturally slow.
Understanding your emotions, as well as learning something about suicide in general, may ease your grief.

"This is not a How-To Manual. I am not a psychologist, therapist or social worker. I am only a moderately educated truck driver. This book is an account of my grieving over, and my attempts to cope with, the suicide of my beloved son, Heber in 1998. This book is dedicated to his memory in the hope that it may help others experiencing a similar trial." ~ Paul Cox
This is a man’s book, emotional and candid, full of plain talk and an indomitable spirit.
