The loss of a father, at any age, can be devastating. Memories can be triggered by anything from a birthday to a poignant moment in a movie or the anniversary of his death. However, with sorrow can also come the realization of the immeasurable contribution a father makes to his children's past present, and future.
Remembrance of Father allows people who have lost their fathers to reflect on the influence and presence their fathers have had in their lives. Using poetry, brief essays, and quotations from famous writers and drawing on the hard-earned wisdom of men and women whose father have died, this book is an opportunity for reflection, mourning, and honoring a father's memory.
With selections from such writers as C. S. Lewis, Thomas Moore, Kurt Vonnegut, and Emma Bombeck, this volume is filled with love, reflection, and compassion. Remembrance of Father is a celebration of the gifts only a father can give.
