Five Cries of Grief

One Family's Journey to Healing After the Tragic Death of a Son
  • By Merton P Strommen
On August 12, 1986 twenty-five-year-old David Strommen was struck and killed by a bolt of lightning. The tragedy sent his parents reeling with grief. Out of that grief came a journey toward healing - a journey that is chronicled in this extraordinary book. The Strommens encountered five cries of grief - the cry of pain, from the awareness of their devastating loss; the cry of longing, from missing their son; the cry for supportive love, from the extreme sense of vulnerability they experienced; the cry for understanding, as they tried to attribute meaning to a meaningless loss; and the cry for significance, as they strove to see some good result from this tragedy. As they wrote accounts of their journey, they recognized that the grief of a father may differ significantly from that of a mother. Their stories - voiced in alternating chapters - launch a journey that can provide strength, insight, and renewal for all who experience the heartbreak of a loved one's sudden death.
