Missing My Son
By: Michele M Roth
About the Book
Missing My Son is a raw and real look into the emotions of a mother after the loss of her son to a shooting accident. Michele M Roth places all of her thoughts and feelings on paper through poetry and short writings to convey her thoughts and feelings during the years after the tragic event. Roth uses her words to hopefully aid other parents who may be going through a loss of their own, to understand they are not alone. It is okay to breathe and continue. It is okay to have a myriad of emotions. Everyone grieves differently, and Roth’s words are here to aid in the process and provide comfort and understanding during one of the most difficult times in a parent’s life.
