Item Description...
On August 12, 1986 twenty five year old David Strommen was struck and killed by a bolt of lightning. The tradedy sent his parent reeling with grief. Out of that grief came a journey toward healing; a journey that is chronicled in this extraordinry book. The Strommens encountered five cries of grief: The cry of pain from the awareness of their devastating loss; the cry of longing, from missing their son; the cry for supportive love, from the extreme sense of vulnerability they experienced; the cry for understanding, as they tried to attribute meaning to a meaningless loss; and the cry for significance, as they strove to see some good result from this tragedy. As they wrote accounts of their journey, they recognized that the grief of a father may differ significantly from that of a mother. Their stories, voiced in alternating chapters launch a journey that can provide strength, insight, and renewal for all who experience the heartbreak of a loved one's death.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Five Cries of Grief  Jan 15, 2001
My mother and my oldest son (who was 24 years old)were killed in an automobile accident seven months ago. Most books I have read on coping with the death of a child have been written by parents who have lost much younger children. In this book the child was 25 years old. I was able to relate to the parents who were the authors of this book. I recommended this book to a friend who wanted to purchase a book for a loved one who had lost a child. I also plan to purchase additional copies of this book to give to others who have lost a child. If you have lost a child, particularly an adult child, I highly recommend this book.
Truly an inspirational story of their journey through grief!  Jun 26, 1999
The Strommens really allow you to share in their journey through grief. It allowed me to get an insight of what my parents were going through after our loss of my brother. This book is truly inspirational, open, loving, and healing! The Lord truly blessed me with through the sharing of their experience.
