In the Ask John & Russell section

… we will publish their answers to selected questions submitted by our Tributes.com visitors. Recovery from grief or loss is achieved by a series of small and correct action choices made by the griever. Therefore, many of the answers will direct readers to their books, The Grief Recovery Handbook or When Children Grieve, which spell out those actions of recovery. Both books are available in most libraries, and are also available on this website and through all bookstores.


We know that your children may have difficulty with the death of someone important to them, and that you may not be sure how to guide them. Please send us your concerns-questions about your children and John & Russell will be happy to offer guidance.
