Nell Lake is the author of “The Caregivers: A Support Gruop’s Stories of Slow Loss, Courage and Love,” a new book that tells some truly heartbreaking stories of love and loss, interspersed with solid-but-subtle advice on how to cope with grieving — a process that sometimes needs to begin before the person you are mourning has physically passed on. Though far from light-hearted, the stories are often comforting. SUBMITTED PHOTO
