Angel watching over:
The holidays are traditionally a time for celebration. But for Kimberly Klein, there's nothing festive about this time of year.
On Dec. 23, 2007, a small plane carrying three local residents disappeared into a Panamanian jungle. On board were Ms. Klein's daughter, Talia Klein, 13, her ex-husband, Michael Klein, 37, and her daughter's best friend, Francesca Lewis, 12, along with their 23-year-old Panamanian pilot, Edwin Lasso.
Grieving During the Holidays
Grief at the loss of a loved one is an emotionally painful and debilitating condition at any time of the year, as the mind struggles to make sense out of what may seem like the destruction of our internal compass. Time may eventually help heal our wounds, but meanwhile, life goes on as usual for the rest of the world, and that includes holidays. Thanksgiving, Christmas, Hanukah and New Year’s are the biggest and usually most challenging of all to endure, let alone enjoy.

FOUR years ago Kimberly Klein received the call that would change her life for ever. It was to say her only child, daughter Talia, was missing on a plane in Panama. It came two days before Christmas as Kimberly, now 45, was waiting for 13-year-old Talia to return from a trip to South America.

The mother is now sharing the emotional story in a new book. As you can imagine, the healing process has been difficult but she found a way. However, it's a healing process some may find controversial.
Healing During The Holidays
(HealthNewsDigest.com) - For many people, the arrival of the holiday season brings with it a mixed bag of emotions: excited, anticipatory, joyous and hopeful feelings, as well as feelings of dread, loneliness, and the wishful thought that the time period between Halloween and New Year’s would just disappear. For whatever reason, everyone deals with the holidays his or her own way. But having a loved one that has passed away throws an entirely new set of emotions into the already crowded mix. Especially when that loved one is your child.
