Remembering Mum, Paperback Book

Remembering Mum Paperback

Illustrated by Leon Morris


Adrian Grimmin's partner, Mandy, died from pneumonia aged 27 in 1988, leaving their two young sons Sam and Eddy feeling hurt and confused.

Ginny Perkins, Sam's schoolteacher, worked with the family to produce a book which emphasizes the importance of talking about bereavement and of remembering.

Showing the family eating dinner, looking at old family snapshots and preparing for bed, the book illustrates that the ordinary events of life carry on alongside the trauma the family feels.

The book reminds the reader of the need to express grief in a society which all too often sees death as a taboo subject.
