"The Grief Companion is a necessary and important tool for anyone who is bound to experience grief (which is, unfortunately, all of us). It's also a bite-sized encyclopedia of questions, actions and prompts that will help readers sit (and engage) with their grieving loved ones in a thoughtful, meaningful way. In short, everyone would benefit from owning a set." -Becky Simpson, author and artist
"The Grief Companion goes beyond platitudes and cliches to provide great wisdom, comfort and validation - give it to everyone who is grieving, has grieved, or will grieve." - Nikki Gemmell
"I have found myself wishing for a warm, honest guide to grieving at so many points in my life. To be a human being is to experience loss, and the pain is coming for all of us eventually. A deck of cards is such a brilliant way to o¬er advice and support for navigating this unavoidable, nonlinear process - and finding the beauty and self-knowledge in it, too." Ann Friedman, NYT bestselling author, writer and host of Call Your Girlfriend podcast.
"What a beautiful and loving idea Ngaio has created! Loss is a very real part of all our lives, and too often we don't have the tools to properly deal with it. We don't know what to say to those that have experienced loss, or what to send to show them we care. What a beautiful, loving and thoughtful gift to be able to pass on to friends and loved ones as a way to encourage them through their darkest hours." -Leanne Ford, HGTV Restored By the Fords Host, author and designer
