Loving Still, Loving Always

Nita Aasen-This collection of essays illuminates the heart and soul of a mother living with loss after the simultaneous deaths of her two young adult sons, Erik and David, in a car accident on Thanksgiving Day, 1994. In order to make sense of her reality, she writes to confront her grief head-on, to question societal expectations surrounding loss by death, and to explore what would bring comfort and meaning into her radically changed life. By giving voice to the grief experience, she also encourages others to give the bereaved permission to mourn.
