A collection of unsophisticated real life experiences, some of which lies in the pathway of all of us somewhere, sometime.
Bereavement is a part of life that most of us will have to deal with some time. Joy and sadness, love and hate, life and death are as much a part of our lives as sunrise and sunset, summer and winter. All of life is a mystery which has provided fertile soil for poets, sages and writers since mankind discovered the art of recorded thought.
This book records various experiences and reactions of people from very different backgrounds who have enjoyed the blessings and the curses which life throws up. It also portrays these people in the ordinary and extraordinary aspects of their lives.
We cannot predict how we will respond to situations we have never experienced. One of the writers of this book, Dr. Mariette Dreyer, was used to dealing with death in her medical practice. Tragically she was destined to find out. Her story is told here exactly as it happened.
