One Widow’s Story about Living beyond Grief

Irene McGoldrick, MSW

Irene McGoldrick had a premonition in late 2002. Just out of the shower, she stood on the second-floor landing of her home and watched her husband of nine years whisper good night to her toddler son. “Remember this moment, remember right now.” The haunting words seeped into her consciousness like a slow, rolling fog-“this won’t last.” Irene and Bob were living an ordinary life a few months later when a cancer diagnosis shook their world to its core. Through poignant anecdotes that detail the young family’s journey through Bob’s illness-one that takes them to both extreme and alternative measures-Irene weaves an unforgettable narrative inspired by Bob’s journal entries and her own honest storytelling that is heartbreaking, and at times, comical. Eventually forced into widowhood at age thirty-six, Irene shares how she reluctantly embraced single parenthood and began her march through mourning, determined to embrace her grief with intention. Two Chai Day is a compelling true story about embracing love and loss, realizing there can be laughter in the midst of sadness, and learning to appreciate the ambiguity of life.

*** SPECIAL SALE – ONLY $10 – WHILE SUPPLIES LAST *** 

These songs of love, life and loss were carefully chosen not only to accompany memorial services and support groups but also to uplift and inspire.  Each song is a gem that captures the heart and soul of grief as well as the true meaning of life. Gone Too Soon, the title song, was originally written for a TV broadcast to pay tribute to performers who had died. It was used for tributes to Princess Diana and has won an Emmy and was recorded by Michael Jackson. Often sung for the infants who have died too soon it has become a hymn of love and sweetness.

Paul Alexander recorded this song with the musical writer, Larry Grossman, who accompanied Paul with piano on this very special arrangement.  In addition to the title song, Mama A Rainbow and Dance with My Father celebrates and honors our parents.  I Hope You Dance and Live Like You Were Dying shine on as words of wisdom with unique vocal performances by Paul. For Good, from the musical Wicked, and To Where You are heart-stirring performances that will bring healing to your spirit.

*** HALF PRICE SALE – WHILE SUPPLIES LAST ***

Written by Sheri Sinykin

In this touching story, a young Jewish girl tries to make peace with the impending death of her grandfather.

Rachel’s grandfather, her Zayde, has come to live with her family. This is because he is dying, she realizes. Rachel can’t help wondering where he will go when he dies. She asks her friends. She asks her rabbi. She asks Zayde.

No one has the perfect answer, but eventually Rachel finds a way to make peace with the fact of her grandfather’s passing. She learns to gather all the moments she can, and to honor his life one small memory at a time.

In this sensitive portrait of a young girl and her grandfather, author Sheri Sinykin approaches the issue of death from a distinctly Jewish perspective while demonstrating respect for all beliefs. Kristina Swarner’s lush illustrations add layers of depth and wonder to the story.
