While you grieve, what do you find the most exhausting? Feeling forced to make my grief more palatable for others.

Grief is a universal experience and there is a demand for books that offer understanding and direction. Everyone needs support, whether in initial grief, years later, somewhere in the middle, or decades beyond. Love Notes to Grievers helps readers grieve, without the confines of other people’s timelines and expectations.

Love Notes to Grievers is a collection of poetic notes by Angela E. Morris, written following the death of her father, friend, and beloved grandmother, all within a short period. She shares them with other grievers as love notes to remind us to honour your love, and make space for your grief. Angela offers raw, heartfelt reflections in the midst of complexity, and of passing through these life-changing events.

Grief can leave you breathless, aching, and seeking. Morris’ losses left her on a quest to understand and make sense of grief, and the only way was to write her way through it. In Love Notes to Grievers you can flip to any page and feel supported in what you are feeling, especially if the people around you don’t seem to understand.

"Love Notes to Grievers manages to capture one's personal grief experience while still remaining relatable and meaningful to others, through a beautiful balance of observation, self-reflection, grace, and encouragement. Angela Morris shares her own story, giving us love notes that affirm our right to grieve in our own time, in our own way. And, most importantly, she reminds us that each and every one of our grief stories matter.” Litsa Williams, MA, LCSW-C, co-author of What's Your Grief: Lists to Help You Through Any Loss

“Angela's raw account of loss and the murky waters that follow acute grief and beyond serve to normalize and validate the complex nature of grief. These stories from her lived experience of loss are woven with love notes, reminding readers that every experience in grief is okay. Angela's writing is honest and accessible. Love Notes to Grievers is likely to leave you feeling like you spent time with a dear friend - one who not only knows grief but one who cares enough to show up to support you in yours.” Tracy Chalmers & Willow Meili, Co-founders of The Grief Well

From the book:

Death isn't a singular event where you continue as usual once the funeral and recommended mourning period ends. There is a low window of tolerance for grief in our society. Death can feel like too much for some. Please keep sharing your stories so that when other people enter this realm, there will be a soft place for them to land with less guilt for refusing to mask their pain for others' comfort. I wish for people to feel supported, loved and held so they can healthily process their loved one's death.

Angela E. Morris is a writer and massage therapist who offers people a soft space to land as they navigate their grief. She provides reflective writing on grief, loss and relational inquiry as it relates to grief, and pushes against how the dominant culture reacts toward death. She encourages her readers to walk together through their ...
