After the shock and trauma of a loved one’s unexpected death, grief and loss can be devastating and confusing. Especially when we are unfamiliar with grief and the grieving process. You’re probably looking for grief support for yourself or a friend or family member, and you want to better understand what you’re going through emotionally, physically and mentally while grieving the sudden death of a loved one.
That’s exactly what author Cindi Brown experienced when her sister Jan died unexpectedly from a stroke at the age of 56, and that’s why she wrote this gentle guide.
After Jan died, Cindi had a deep need to understand what she and her family were going through. While there were many books and articles on grief, and the stages of grief, she couldn’t find the short book of explanations and reassurances she desperately needed in those early, dark days.
Unable to find a compassionate overview explaining what she was feeling/thinking, Cindi decided to write this small grief handbook with the intention of helping others understand what happens to them and their loved ones as they come to terms with the awful truth, and as they eventually begin the recovery process.

Cindi Brown and her two sisters, Cathy and Jan, were all born in the early 60s in the tiny town of McRae, Georgia, and grew up steeped in the southern storytelling tradition. Cathy founded “the hudspeth report,” an Atlanta monthly newspaper, Jan was the teller of family tales, and Cindi, who knew from an early age she wanted to be a writer, began as a reporter at “the hudspeth report” in the 80s.
After earning a bachelor’s and master’s degree in Communication, Cindi then indulged her love of writing for 20+ years through marketing/communication roles for large corporations, including The Coca-Cola Company, Experian and Nationwide Insurance. She has also indulged her passion for writing in her free time over the decades, publishing “Poverty & Promise: One Volunteer’s Experience of Kenya,” an award-winning book about the dignity of Kenyans and her time as a marketing manager for the Tropical Institute of Community Health & Development in Kisumu, Kenya.
