PASSAGES concern the personal and emotional transformations and processes experienced by survivors when a loved one dies. There is a journey for both the dying and the living, as each of their worlds drastically and forever change. The author, Curt Bennett, was the husband of Judith Loven-Bennett who peacefully passed away on October 7, 2008 at Lawrence Memorial Hospital after fourteen days of unconsciousness caused by the lack of oxygen to the brain. This book ranges in topics such as conversations with God; accepting reality; grief; anger; bargaining; denial; acceptance; compassion; stress and depression; to letting go and saying goodbye. There are no holds barred, no subject or question sacred or off limits, no deity held blameless. There were no answers to be found to these and other questions in any bookstore or reference library, so this book was written to help address and answer them.
