Do Not Stand At My Grave And Weep
"You have done a remarkable job – a wonderful selection of poetry, clearly presented. You truly are providing an exceptional service for the bereaved; and I don't know if it's just me, but love and kindness, care and compassion, seem to suffuse everything you do in relation to The Light Beyond. Here's wishing you ongoing success; it's thoroughly deserved." David Smith
"This book is at least as good as - if not better than - anything you can buy in the shops. The range of poems is superb and the
attention to detail impressive." Will Furnell
"A great book for the early days, but of course it's good for afterwards too (when in some ways things are harder as everyone goes back to their lives except you). I did have a cry when I read some of the poems, and felt much better for it." Andaleeb Lilley
"Do Not Stand At My Grave And Weep is a book of beautiful writing about grief. Lucie Storrs has put together a collection that comes from the very being of the authors. In this book there is something for everyone, regardless of faith or belief system – you cannot help but find a poem or quotation that touches the heart. I hope this resource reaches everyone in their time of need and is able to offer comfort and hope that love lives on..." Kate Bacon
"I loved the mix of religious and non-religious poems and the mix of old and new. It's not every day that poetry books move so easily from Buddha, Lucretius and Seneca to W.H. Auden, Larkin and the Bible - it's wonderfully eclectic. Thank you." J.B.
"A very well organized and comprehensive resource. This book far exceeded my expectations; I found it extremely useful and comforting at a distressing time in my life and can happily recommend it to others." S.K.
"Stands as an interesting collection on its own; as a poetry fan, even if you haven't been bereaved it's wonderful to just wander through and see all the different viewpoints." P.M.
Bereavement For Beginners
"Bereavement For Beginners is the book you pray you will never need, and then are only too glad to discover is available when you need it. I wish this comforting resource had been around 16 years ago and two years ago in my own personal hours of need. The contents are useful and uplifting and ease the way to a therapeutic grief process. I look forward to being able to share it with others, and I feel better just knowing it's there." Judith Morgan
"I wish The Light Beyond had been around many years ago when I lost my mother and could have used its practical advice and caring approach. I remember the time immediately after her death to be a time of confusion and questions - what was the right thing to do at her funeral, where did I start with legal issues and how did I help my family through their grief as well as cope with my own?"
"Bereavement For Beginners helps address all these issues in a comforting and thoughtful manner and holds your hand through
those difficult early days." Andaleeb Lilley
"Bereavement For Beginners is a really valuable resource for
music, readings and giving a eulogy as well as dealing with
the legal process. Importantly, it also encourages you to
think about your own feelings." Jean Wolfe
"This is a truly excellent guide. I would happily have paid for this information. Thank you so much for your generosity!" Sally Wilson
The inspirational movie
"The Light Beyond has the most beautiful short movie I've come across. The thoughtful words and outstanding images offer those
of us who have lost a loved one a sense not just that someone
understands but also of hope and optimism for the future. Unmissable." Marion Ryan
"The Light Beyond brings together a beautiful poem about hope
and peace and inspirational visuals. It's helped me to take time
out to reflect and meditate as I read the words..." Claire Chapman
"This is a very beautifully put together movie, which is gentle, touching and provides solace in some very difficult moments.
It reminded me of some of my departed loved ones
in a very beautiful and inspiring way." Petra Lander
"Beautiful imagery combined with wonderful words which evoke feelings of loss, change, healing and renewal. A real comfort for
those experiencing difficult times. Thank you." Marie Taylor
The project as a whole
"Lucie's new venture, The Light Beyond www.thelightbeyond.com is a valuable new resource for those coping with a death and the resulting grief response. She has demonstrated unwavering determination to oversee the launch of the Light Beyond website, bereavement forum and blog. I have been particularly impressed with her creativity in creating the movie and ebook versions of the poem "Do Not Stand At My Grave And Weep." These various online products and resources were developed by Lucie and her staff of writers "to help ease the burden of the bereavement process."
Lucie is a talented addition to the grieving Internet community to help in easing people through their journey of bereavement. I am happy to recommend her work with The Light Beyond with high praise."
