Adult children often need to do much more than make the funeral arrangements when a parent dies. The death of a parent can be a major life-changing event for the adult child. "The Death of a Parent is filled with stories of people who have lost a parent and how they dealt with the reality of that event. Eighteen stories divided into eight sections touch on a wide range of emotions and situations related to grief, loss and moving on with one's life in a healthy manner. A spiritual reflection concludes each of the sections.
