- How comfortable you want to be.
- How you want people to treat you.
- What you want your loved ones to know.

Order two for a couple.
Life After Death – A Wellness Guide for the Bereaved by Lucille Rosetti
Lucille Rosetti created TheBereaved.org as a means of sharing tools to help people through the grief process. Having lost some of the people closest to her, she understands what it’s like, and how it can be an emotional roller coaster that doesn’t always seem to make sense. She’s currently writing an ebook, Life After Death: A Wellness Guide for the Bereaved, which will be available in Summer 2020.
