Cry Heart, But Never Break

Death Explains The Meaning Of Life


A​ grandmother is on her deathbed. Her four grandchildren who she has raised are sad. Death visits them, but the poor children are desperate to delay him in his duties. Death understands, and drinks the many cups of coffee they offer.

Finally, he tells them a story which opens their eyes to the fact that letting their grandmother pass on is part of the journey.

"What would life be worth if there were no death? Who would enjoy the sun if it never rained? Who would yearn for the day if there were no night?", asks Death. Indeed.

The children sadly accept and allow for their grandmother to pass away and they understand what the book's author tries to so eloquently say -Death is life moving on. They treasure the memories of their grandmother as they get on with their lives.

A story within a story make Cry Heart, But Do Not Break an invaluable book about handling grief and sorrow along with joy and delight.
