Goodbye for Now by Welby O'Brien

October 13, 2019

Disclosure: I received this book for review purposes only. Any opinions are my own.

Saying goodbye to a loved one is never easy. While we all have our own way to deal with death, it is so nice and helpful to have a resource for those who need a little help to heal. This book could be that resource and came just in time to offer a friend who recently lost his son. We often do not know what to say, can words even help those grieving? The best thing is just being there for them, offering a shoulder to cry on, and arm for a hug and hope for time to heal. When you cannot be there, Goodbye for Now could be the best book to offer. A book offering hope, help and healing for when you need it most!
