Friendgrief.com is a website devoted to the exploration of grief, the grieving process, and the healing we hope takes place after losing a loved one.

“Tower Stories” was recently mentioned in The New York Times on Friday, August 26, 2011 (“Stories of 9/11 and its Aftermath” by Sam Roberts) as one of eleven books which the Times called “heart-breaking reminiscences by New Yorkers who survived the attack and then endured a decade of denial, doubt, and rebuilding.”
A video about the book recently debuted on Odyssey Networks’ “Call on Faith” smart phone app for iPhone, Blacberry, and Android. Odyssey Networks is the nation’s largest multi-faith coalition dedicated to promoting tolerance, peace, and social justice through the production and distribution of media.
