Details: "Memories saturate my heart and the story of you spills from my eyes."
For the past 19 years, Grace Andren has mourned the death of her young daughter. It was only through her passion for writing poetry that she was able to express her grief and opened a floodgate of emotions...
Joy. Sorrow. Anger. Love. Hope.
Her poetic journey through the grieving process is contained within the book, Speaking In Tears. Through her words and the chosen black and white photographs, Grace Andren takes the reader from Sorrow to Hope.
"My advice for whatever you are grieving--be it a way of life, a child, a spouse, a parent, a friend, or a pet. No matter what your grief is--be gentle with yourself. The pain, the tears, and the sorrow are normal and part of the process. But give yourself permission to feel joy. It's okay to smile, to laugh, and to live. Moving forward is not letting go because we take our loved ones with us." --Grace Andren
