Four pieces written by Adele DelSavio, a contributing writer to In Good
Health, have been featured in a new book, From Eulogy To Joy.
From Eulogy To Joy is an anthology of personal accounts of the grieving
process. Its authors are people who have experienced grief firsthand in
a variety of situations: loss of parents, mates, children, siblings,
relatives and friends through accidents, illness, suicide, murder and
The book was written to provide comfort and reassurance that grief is
intensely individual and, because of this, most responses to it are
appropriate. It addresses loss not so much as something to get over but
as something to grow through.
DelSavio's contributions to From Eulogy To Joy deal with the loss of
her 17-year-old son, Michael, who died in an accident in 1994. They
originally appeared in the Oswego Palladium-Times.
Other contributors to the book include Judy Belushi, widow of comedian
John Belushi; Rabbi Earl Grollman, author of Living When A Loved One Has
Died; and Neale Donald Walsch, author of Conversations With God, Books
I, II and III.
