About the Sympathy Gift Series
The death of a loved one, loss of a pet, job, home or marriage, are all life-altering events. Some people only experience two or three significant losses during their lifetime. Others more. But one thing is for sure, dealing with loss takes time. Processing grief takes help.
When dealing with loss, support arrives in different forms. Take the medical care of a doctor or the empathy of a grief counsellor. Each plays a vital role in ensuring a healthy passage through grief. Likewise, the love from friends and family provides hope, reassurance and comfort during dark days. But there is another kind of help—one that rests deep within us.
When loved ones and pets depart the physical world, they leave within our hearts, a trove of happy memories. And within each treasured memory lives a spark of happiness. The challenge is finding the strength to release these sparks of joy while grieving. That’s where The Sympathy Gift Series can help.
Each title within The Sympathy Gift Series is a grief relief handbook. Beautiful photographs and heartfelt words combine to trigger happy memories. Over time, these continual sparks of joy, no matter how small, bring about healing from loss. That’s why our tag line is ‘bringing you happy while you heal sad’.
Our mission is to assist healing from within by helping you to unlock the power of happy.
