"Roe nicely describes the various emotions surviving spouses feel from shock, to tears that refuse to stop, to anger, to numbness. Most of us who have lost a spouse felt many of those emotions. Or the pain may have been so deep we temporarily felt nothing." --Cecil Murphey, New York Times Bestselling author of more than 130 books including 90 Minutes in Heaven and Gifted Hands: The Ben Carson Story.

"A look at the reality of grief that is long overdue. I highly recommend "Heartbroken" to anyone experiencing grief or involved with those who are." -Dr.Tony Taylor, Senior Pastor, Hilltop Lakes Chapel

"Heartbroken will be recommended reading to be used with my clients. Loss is frequently the presenting problem and often times it has been unresolved from years past. Gary's stories and insight are relevant to the grieving soul." -Carrie Andree, Licensed Professional Counselor

"Anyone who grieves the death of a spouse will find this book a welcome addition to the challenge of facing life without someone so special. More than a book of platitudes or theories, Heartbroken is filled with practical ways to embrace a situation that, while painful and difficult, can ultimately be life-giving. In a simple yet powerful format, Gary brings meaning and inspiration and facilitates the presence of hope and comfort, all crucial for those who grieve." - Dr. Craig Borchardt, President / CEO, Hospice Brazos Valley

I highly recommend it." -Paul Casale, Licensed Mental Health Counselor / Marriage-Family Therapist"Through real life experiences and sound advice, Roe helps grieving spouses navigate the turbulent waters of loss. His caring heart for people shines through his words and allows him to speak honestly in helpful ways. Heartbroken will be an invaluable resource to anyone who is grieving or knows someone who is." - Dr. Troy Allen, Pastor"Heartbroken not only helps in navigating through the emotions of loss but it allows grievers to feel as if we are not alone. As a seasoned hospice chaplain and grief counselor, Roe not only understands the process but has the empathy and compassion to feel with his grievers. This book is a must read for anyone who has lost a loved one." - Kimberly Dafferner, author, Licensed Clinical Social Worker"Heartbroken is exactly what one is after you have lost a spouse. There is no other way to describe how you feel. I wish I had this book when I lost my husband to cancer. Every person should have this book to guide them as they begin their journey in grief." - Norma Millsap"Heartbroken was just what I needed. I was fatigued and this book reminded me that is to be expected - that emotions cycle through, without warning, for years after a loss. It was what I needed to hear, delivered in a kind and upbeat tone. I will keep this wonderful resource handy for years to come." - Kelli Levey-Reynolds, Mays Business School, Texas A&M University "I have been widowed for several years.
