Larry Barber knows grief all too well. In May 1993 his wife Cindy and 2-year-old daughter Katie died from injuries suffered in a traffic accident in Arlington, Texas. As a widowed single parent, he raised two surviving children, 9-year-old Sarah and 12-year-old Christian. Barber is a minister, a licensed professional counselor, and certified in Thanatology (the specialized study of death, dying and bereavement) through the Association for Death Education and Counseling (ADEC). He served 6 years as a hospice bereavement coordinator and 14 years as a grief support group facilitator in Dallas, Fort Worth, & Arlington. In 2007, Larry began at ChristianWorks, where he currently serves in the CounselingWorks, GriefWorks and KIDWorks ministries. Barber conducts grief seminars, in-services, and church presentations. He is the author of the grief survival guide, “Love Never Dies: Embracing Grief with Hope and Promise.”
