Larry Barber knows grief all too well. In May 1993 his wife Cindy and his two year old daughter Katie died from injuries suffered in a traffic accident in Arlington, Texas.  As a widowed single parent he raised his surviving children, 9 year old Sarah and 12 year old Christian. He is now the proud grandfather of 2 year old Noah. Barber is a minister, a licensed professional counselor and certified in Thanatology, the study of death, dying and bereavement through the Association for Death Education and Counseling. He served as a hospice bereavement counselor for six years, the past director of GriefWorks and CounselingWorks at ChristianWorks of Dallas for twelve years and a grief therapist for 17 years. Barber works currently with Taylor Counseling Group in Dallas. He conducts grief support groups, grief seminars and in-services in Dallas and Fort Worth.  He is the author of the best selling book "Love Never Dies: Embracing Grief With Hope and Promise."
