What are people saying about the guide and journal...
5 *s Wonderful and much needed resource "The intuitive, lived-experience compassion in each one of these journal prompts have led me to explore my emotions in a new way. This lovely book is the first one I've found that's written for the parent bereaved by suicide. We are on the outer edge of a universe that most grief guides just don't reach. My deepest thanks to you for writing this."

What are people saying about the guide
. Beautiful, Easily Digestible Guide. "For those who have experienced suicide loss, this is a must read. This beautiful little gem is easily digestible for those who cannot focus on a meaty book. The layout highlights each important point, in order for you to find hope on a difficult day or during this difficult time. As a former book editor, I am impressed with the content, layout, thoughtfulness and energy behind this book. Thank you, Melissa."
What Fellow Grievers are Saying About the Podcast & Support Community
" I lost my 25 year old son to suicide October 8, 2020... I am so sorry you are here, a club none of us wanted to be a part of. Our children were not supposed to go before us. I found Melissa's podcast .. and her Leftover Pieces "mom support" zoom group. The first 1 I attended was on the anniversary of the last time I spoke to my son. Dreading this day, I knew I needed support. I messaged Melissa and joined the group. I said nothing and just listened. What I witnessed was grieving mothers all sharing their feeling about how suicide loss of their child has impacted their life. The energy in the room was so supportive, I felt like finally I had people who understand all of this. I think it was a few times participating in the group before I really opened up. Now I make this group a top priority in my healing...you will be held, you will be seen"
Mom In Ohio
"My world came crashing down when my youngest died unexpectedly. While faced with finding my way through the most difficult journey of my life, I stumbled across this podcast. I didn’t sign-up to be in the grieving mother club, yet here I am trying to navigate life without my son. Melissa’s podcast and book have been a blessing".
"I lost my daughter, Wednesday 12/22/21. I didn’t find this podcast until fall of 2022 but I am so grateful I did.Melissa has done an amazing job at collecting resources and organizing them for those who are grieving. She brings guests onto her podcast that can help people in many ways. I listen to most of her episodes twice because they’re easy to listen to and I want retain everything I hear. She also has thorough show notes with links and resources on each episode.I am so grateful...the (moms support) community you have created & everything you have done. It's helped me more than words can explain."
"Being a part of this support community has changed my outlook and given me hope...being with other moms makes all of the difference & this is such a supportive space.... thank you"
"It's like you extracted these words from my heart...it started with the podcast for me but my growth would not be where it is without this support community. Thank you for the safe spaces you provide Melissa "
