"Siblings are like witnesses to your life’s history. Brothers and sisters are part of your past, present and future. In the early days of my grief, my brain struggled to catch up with what my heart already knew….Then I found TAPS. It was like finding a missing piece to the puzzle. The biggest comfort TAPS gave me was the knowledge that there were others in my position." – Elizabeth Doherty, TAPS Sibling Survivor

Book Shelf: Surviving the Holidays Without You: Navigating Grief During Special Seasons
Reviewed by Kelly Griffith, Surviving Sister of Maj. Samuel Griffith, Written by Gary Roe

TAPS Magazine | After my brother died in December 2011, I didn’t know what to do when I woke up on Christmas morning. His death was still real. I didn’t want to have Christmas without him. So, I didn’t. The second Christmas without Sam physically here, I wanted to find a way to honor his life and still feel him near me. I wish I had read Gary Roe’s book, Surviving the Holidays Without You: Navigating Grief During Special Seasons.
