The Many Colours of Grief 

This series of three publications has been written to assist families and friends through what can be a very difficult and challenging time. "Grief is like a mix of colours. It can surprise us with its depth or vivid brightness, but also can show us its pale and muted tones". 

Book One - The first days and weeks of grief...

Book Two - As the months go by...

Book Three - As the first anniversary approaches and beyond...

These Skylight publications are available via the online shop or email [email protected] . $13.00 (GST incl) each.

Christmas Without You, Christmas without you here with me, can never possibly be the same. But I carry an Angel within my heart; one so precious, who has your name. An Angel forever watching over me, at Christmas time, and over the year. Although you can't be here anymore, inside my heart, you are so very near. There is no special present for you, wrapped up under my Christmas tree. But I have a greater gift to give to you; all the love you can still feel from me. No, Christmas time without you here, could not ever possibly be the same. But, I have had the precious gift of you, and the memories and love, will remain. - Pamela Hall
