Book Synopsis

To those around me--my friends, my colleagues, even my daughter--I appear normal, but in one very fundamental way, I am not.

The old me left with my wife. I'm not sure who this new person is--I am still evolving. But I will tell you this with absolute certainty: I am not the same person I was before my wife died on January 1, 2018.

For anyone struggling with the loss of a spouse--anyone whose world has been turned upside down in a way they've never encountered before--here is something that could help. Waving Goodbye is a candid, honest, and approachable guide to dealing with the death of a spouse written by a very ordinary guy who has lived through the ordeal.

Warren Kozak doesn't just tell you that time heals all wounds; he explains how the passage of time actually helped. Despite the shattering heartbreak and insurmountable grief, Kozak shares what worked, what didn't, and the insights he learned along the way to help anyone who has suffered this kind of loss.

Review Quotes

"Anyone grappling with the profound loss of a spouse will find a beacon of hope and peace in Warren Kozak's new book Waving Goodbye: Life After Loss. I highly recommend this personal and accessible guide to navigating the labyrinth of grief. It offers solace and insight from a place of deep understanding."--Esther Perel, World Renowned Couples Psychotherapist

"Poignant, often wrenching, sometimes funny, Waving Goodbye is celebrated author and journalist Warren Kozak's memoire of his wife's (Lisa) long ultimately losing battle with cancer and his and their daughter's (Claire) years that followed. It is a study of death and grief--and, on every page, enduring love. Equally, it is a handbook of hope for those who must cope with a spouse's terminal illness...or help their spouse cope with theirs. A postscript by Claire reveals a young and compelling writer of power, insight and grace worthy of her remarkable parents."--Clark S. Judge, White House Writers Group, Inc.
