|When a loved one dies
Shock, numbness, frustration, emptiness, loneliness - death is real and so are its effects. We don't like to think about death, so we live as if we are never going to die. No wonder death often finds us unprepared. But feelings of extreme pain and loss must be confronted. To help our readers cope with grief and the loss of loved ones, we have put together this special report from articles that have appeared in the Plain Truth magazine and its sister publication, The Good News. These articles offer positive help in tackling tough issues. We hope you will come to understand much more about facing death, not only on an individual basis, but also how to explain death to children - they need an explanation and the stability only a parent can give. We include the perspective of a teenager handling life after her father died. You'll also learn four things you can do to help people in times of bereavement - four practical ways to be genuinely helpful to others when they need it most.
