"Kim's words, ripped from her diary, are raw, painting a picture of the excruciating anguish that so many left behind by the physical departing of a loved one express." -Duck White-Petteruti, Founder, Domus Pacis Family Respite

"It will give you, the reader, permission to remember, never forget, and to slowly live from the place of heart again." -Patty L. Luckenbach, MA, DD, associate minister and author of I Only Walk On Water When It Rains

The grief that accompanies the loss of a loved one is crippling. In Feeling Left Behind, author Kim Murdock relates and empathizes with that pain because she's been there. She knows what it feels like to be woefully blindsided by music or at the grocery store, to reconsider the future alone, and to connect with a person who is no longer alive. You will relate to her chapters as she describes:

  1. The crushing desire to freeze time and isolate yourself
  2. The unstable phase of "firsts"― first holidays, birthdays, anniversaries
  3. The anger and sadness at seeing other couples
  4. The loss of self, empathy, security, and tolerance
  5. The heartbreaking sadness of getting rid of their belongings
  6. And so much more

This is not a step-by-step guide on how to grieve. Kim outlines every detail of her experience as well as the experiences of her widow/widower friends to show you that you are not alone. You are normal. And you deserve as much time as possible to figure out how to survive in your own way.
