Coping with Father Loss

Posted Friday, August 21, 2009

Coping with Father Loss The death of Lakewood native Pamela Thomas's father when she was ten left her with unresolved and unarticulated feelings. Decades later, it led her on a nine-year journey of discovery to fully realize how father loss had woven itself into the tapestry of her life. Along the way, she talked with 106 women who'd lost fathers before the age of 18 through death, divorce or abandonment. Her research yielded strategies for coming to terms with father loss and a just- published book, “Fatherless Daughters.” She talks with Regina Brett for the hour at 9:00 a.m. Friday. Join us with your story.
