What a delight it was to have Gary Roe back in the studio with me today. We talked extensively about his new book with New York Times bestselling author Cecil Murphey, Saying Goodbye: Facing the Loss of a Loved One.
There were so many common sense, practical tips given to help us prepare for the inevitable, and to be a blessing to our loved one, and appreciate the blessing they have been to us. The bittersweet aspects of losing a loved one can actually be embraced and appreciated, with the right tools. Tools that will help you keep your focus on Jesus and take healthy steps to leave nothing left unsaid, and take care of any unfinished business between the two of you. Oh and then there’s the importance of taking care of yourself, so you really can be a blessing to your loved one as you care for them during this stressful time.
So many good points made…and such a good resource for everyone. After all, death is a part of life, and there’s no getting around experiencing the loss of a loved one (well, unless you go first!)…so you might as well get prepared to be a blessing and not a curse.
