The Sibling Connection



Hazel Woodward --- "Adult Sibling Loss"


          This is the tape of a sibling workshop at a Compassionate Friends conference led by Hazel Woodward, whose brother was killed as an adult in an airplane crash.

           Ms. Woodward encourages participation from the group and leads them with skill and compassion. It is an important part of healing to connect with other bereaved siblings, but if you cannot do so in person, this tape is the next best thing. You can buy it here from the Compassionate Friends organization.


         Before their Time is a collection of memorial songs produced by Michael Whitman, a musician and Hospice volunteer. After the death of his son at 23, Whitman produced the album to benefit Hospice (Vermont/New Hampshire) and the New Hampshire Youth Suicide Prevention Association.

         The album, available as CD or cassette tape, contains a variety of music. There are songs for bereaved parents, siblings, friends, spouses, and children. They range from pop and folk songs such as Beth Niesen Chapmans' "Sand and Water" and Cindy Bullens' "Somewhere between Heaven and Earth" to songs I had never heard, such as the lovely ballad "Turning towards the Morning" by Gordon Bok.

         After the death of a loved one, we have to choose between sinking into grief permanently or moving forward into life, using our strengths to help others. Clearly, Mr. Whitman chose to use his heart-breaking experience in a way that benefits many survivors.

         If you want to order Before their Time, visit the website at www.beforetheirtime.org.
