Love Never Dies
Love Never Dies
I created this emotionally powerful and comforting book for children who have experienced a bereavement. It has had an incredible impact already, on both children and adults and furthermore, Grief Encounter, 2Wish Upon a star and many independent mental health workers have used this book as one of their key resources following a bereavement.
"I'm the bereavement lead nurse for the Paediatric Intensive Care Unit. The book you wrote is amazing. We are always looking for resources to give to bereaved families and siblings. It really is better than anything we have."
"So we read Love Never Dies. A typical 5.5 year old, the first thing she said when I said the title of the book was Daddy died and there we began. Basically by the end, we were both a bit wobbly but she turned to me and said "that book understands." I asked her why and she said "it's right, you do want to look for him even though you know he's not there, he's dead and that means he's gone. And it also knows that Daddy still loves me." I looked at her and she pointed at her chest and said “here in my heart he loves me and I love him”. Then she flung her arms around me and said “I love you, thank you for reading me your special book”, lay down, and within minutes was fast asleep. As I write this the tears are welling. Honestly though, that wouldn't have happened without your book."
What inspired me to create this book
Just days after the birth of his little girl, my Dad's friend Jeroen was tragically killed outside his house as he popped out to post some birth announcement cards. I created this illustration and poem, truly hoping I could provide some comfort for Jeroen’s wonderful wife and daughter, Nadja and Fleur. I am so touched that this comfort is being shared around the world to reach other people who need it too.
My thoughts are with you if you need this book.
Drop a gift message in with your order and I will pop it in with your book when it's being wrapped up.
The three books arrived today and I am more than delighted with them. They were wonderfully wrapped and well packed for the overseas journey.
Lorna, thank you so much for sharing your wonderful gifts with the world this way. And now your video! 😁
I will enjoy sharing the books with my daughters when they are able to visit and I have sent them the link to the video of Bear’s Christmas. ❤️
