How do we grieve? Why do we grieve? And why are we afraid of those that do grieve?

A Love That Never Dies is a personal journey by two bereaved parents Jane Harris and Jimmy Edmonds. Their son died in a road accident in Vietnam five years ago and they now honour him with their own road trip across the USA. On the way they meet with other families who have also lost a child.

“It’s about not shying away from grief, of not letting go but of continuing the bond with the deceased and finding rewards where we expected none.” Jane Harris

Grief is the form love takes when somebody dies. A Love That Never Dies gives a voice to that grief.
