ABOUT

Have you suffered a loss? Maybe it was your parent, or your dear grandparents. Maybe it was a dream job. Perhaps it was the enjoyment of close friends as you moved away. Perhaps you lost a pet whose unconditional love seemed irreplaceable. Or tragically, you lost your beloved spouse. David Knapp will walk with you through that experience because he has walked through each of these himself. Grief does not discriminate. Grief can blindside the youngest to the oldest. As friends and family watched him walk with his second wife through the throes of cancer, many realized that this man does not deny the sorrow, but it will not master him. He shares kindly, intimately and with wisdom not only how to cope in the darkest of days, but also how to go through the process finding relief and into a winning attitude for the next chapter or phase of your life.
