In this brief, moving book he writes of the hope and life that is ahead for those who courageously engage their grief and give it a voice.

As a native of Louisiana, Greer received a Bachelor of Science degree from Louisiana State University. He also has a Master of Divinity from Emory University and a Master of Theology in pastoral counseling from Columbia Theological Seminary. He is a much sought after counselor at the 6,800 member Peachtree Road United Methodist Church (www.prumc.org) in Atlanta.
