New resource for grieving parents

By Lisa Haddock

Talented blogger Alan D. Busch has released Snapshots: In Memory of Ben, a book about the loss of his son. If it's as good as his blog (The Book of Ben), we can expect a first-rate resource for anyone dealing with grief.

Victoria Valentine of Water Forest Press writes, "The author’s words are honest and candid, as he shares family history and relays with impact, the untimely death of his beloved son. A ‘straightforward—deep-from-the-heart-and-soul read.’"

I wish Alan the best with this new project. To learn more about the book, visit the
Snapshots Web site.
