It's every parents nightmare, to have a child die before them. Roger Rosenblatt shares his thoughts and experiences with us after the unexpected death of his daughter, a doctor, wife and mother of three young children. His story chronicles how he and his wife moved in with his son-in-law and grandchildren, and began the process of grieving and putting their life back together.

This memoir was poignant in its simplicity. Even the smallest and most ordinary of tasks take on special meaning. Although life is altered after the death of a loved one, it goes on, through the mundane acts of getting dressed in the morning, driving a child to school, or making toast for breakfast.
