DEAD PEOPLE SUCK, A GUIDE FOR SURVIVORS OF THE NEWLY DEPARTED
by Laurie Kilmartin
Laurie Kilmartin lost her 82-year-old father in 2014. Even though he had end-stage lung cancer, she couldn't imagine he would really die. She still needed him. I could totally relate. My 87-year-old father died 2 months ago and I still needed him. In this book, Kilmartin asks questions I have thought of as my dad lay dying and after his death. She asks some serious questions but injects them with humor so that I found myself chuckling as I read. I could totally relate to some of the death humor. If you have recently lost a loved one, this may be the book for you; or maybe not. I thoroughly enjoyed this book however.
