In this video Claudia answers the question, "Will this book help the reader to better cope with the loss of a loved one?"

About the book: "In Memoir of Mourning: Journey through Grief and Loss to Renewal, I write with candour and some humour of Mom’s life and her bouts with cancer and bipolar disease. I scribbled down my thoughts – raw, intense, and immediate during Mom’s dying days and the trauma of death and burial. I describe how hard it is to express my grief, even to my closest family. No one really wants to hear my answer when they ask me, How are you?

I emphasize the importance of celebrating family and community traditions. Remembering to remember. My story assures us we’re all connected in our need to share our sorrow and be comforted. As I was writing Memoir of Mourning, I came to realize what a relief it was for me to describe what I was going through and to share my experiences. I hope that sharing my story helps guide you through your deep sorrow and brings you solace.

In addition to enriching readers on an individual basis, Memoir of Mourning serves as a thoughtful companion piece for support programs and palliative care training for professionals and volunteers. It is a useful resource for any organization committed to supporting individuals and families experiencing the loss of their loved one."
