He embarked on a thorough canvassing of the scriptures and church history on this topic, which helped him on his grief journey. Gwendolyn found solace in writing out her responses and thoughts in moving, sensitive poetry. Their combined efforts meld the pain and poignancy of the devastating experience of a family member's suicide.
