In May, 1989, my brother John died. He was 18, I was just shy of 22. It was difficult navigating the world of grief. I tried to find information on how you are ‘supposed’ to grieve, but there weren’t many resources out there for siblings. I went to Compassionate Friends meetings, but they were really focused on parents.
So for many years now, I have wanted to write a book dealing with sibling grief. There are not a lot of resources out there for siblings. Plenty for parents, but not us.
I would like to get other people who have also dealt with sibling grief to help with this project. If you know anyone who has lost a sibling, before the age of 30, I would like to talk to them about their experiences…if they are up for it. Please have them contact me directly at firstname.lastname@example.org. No I do not have any kind of book deal nor have I even pursued that yet. I just feel this is something I have to do and the rest will fall into place.
