When Bob Terry’s wife, Eleanor, died in 1998 following a car wreck in South Africa, he began a journey with grief he never expected and certainly never wanted. His new book, “Struggling Toward Hope: Life After the Death of a Spouse,” shares not only the personal lessons he learned along that journey, but also practical tips for survivors as they learn to live after a loved one dies.
Terry’s book tells his story and provides meaningful suggestions for grieving spouses and others who desire to help someone after the death of a loved one. He also examines the practical changes that happen following a death, including situations those on the outside of the situation probably never think about — questions about how and when to clean out your loved one’s closet, whether it’s OK to redecorate and when to explore new relationships. “Struggling Toward Hope: Life After the Death of a Spouse,” is published by Soncoast Publishing in Hartselle, Alabama, and is available in e-book and print from most major booksellers.
