At Denver Share we acknowledge that we do not have all the answers. Every loss is unique to each family and your situation may include something that none of us have experienced. We do have a small library available at our meetings if there is a book you would like to borrow. The following resources are based on what we felt to be helpful during our losses. There are a vast amount of resources out there so please let us know if we should add something.
