Letter from the Editor, December
There are not enough thanks in the universe to tell you all how grateful I am for your readership, your contributions, and your support!
This issue is packed full of ideas, supports, resources and more -- all contributed from bereaved parents and other amazing care givers who truly understand how very difficult the holidays are after the death of a loved one. And in this KotaPress safe space, we don't count how many years or days it's been since your loved one died -- we just know that any holiday stinks when you have lost a child or other family member.
Katie Smith did a FABULOUS job as my co-editor for this issue of the Loss Journal. She's contributed wonderful works this issue and pointed me in so many great directions for finding other materials. I want to send huge thanks to all the parents on our KotaPress Yahoo Discussion Group who shared ideas, posts, and more for this issue. I want to point out that our links and our Memoiral Garden both have new additions.
Please take your time, enjoy a cuppa tea or a latte, and meander through this whole issue. Make this your time to take care of yourself -- remember that sometimes during the holidays, self-preservation is most important for just getting through each moment. And that is OKAY!
