Grief Comfort Guide: A Personal Journey from Loss to Light
You’ll Laugh .. You’ll Cry .. Former Hollywood Insider Shares Insights on Movie Personalities and What Grieving Taught Her in this Inspirational Memoir and Guide to Help Cope with Grief
Many memoirs focus on the passing of one loved one so the fact that Marie Lenay Rogus has written her stories to celebrate the lives of seven loved ones makes the Grief Comfort Guide an example of how one person can overcome that much grief and still be a symbol of hope and a guiding light to others going through this difficult journey.
She expresses the joy of living in the present as she lovingly shares her own life interconnected with a strong grandmother who lived through the terror of World War I hiding two small children in an outdoor incinerator when the solders came, a mother who was emancipated way before her time and called an angel by her friends and family and a husband, a funny and delightful man, a leading edge engineer who lost his kidney function and career at 42 with two babies to support and she continues with the tales of her teenage son, sisters, nephew and son in law. She then throws in some life after life experiences just to make things more interesting.
Lenay also lightens her stories with her reflections on her eighteen years working in Hollywood interacting with stars like Cary Grant, Mae West, Farrah Fawcett, Stallone, De Niro and others.
She knows grief can be unbearable, that you don’t know how or if you can get through it and you want to hear from someone who has so she put together ten suggestions that helped her and offers them to the reader along with some guided imagery to help cope with stress.
