Just Keep Breathing, by Oregon Author Jana Brock, was written to raise awareness and share vital information about the effects of losing someone very close. Many books on this subject are not written to reach the reader on an emotional level. So that we might remember these critical lessons, this one has been.
At some point, we will all succumb to death. Before that day comes, it is also likely we will lose people we love. We will see friends, family and colleagues suffer those losses, too. When death occurs, we become a support system for the bereaved, just as they will at some point be in a position to give their support to us. Learning how to best support those around us is key to maintaining strong relationships in times of crisis.
Take a walk down the path that stretches from the present day back to the turn of the 2011 New Year. Read. Learn. And pass your knowledge onto others so that they may do the same. May this book travel far across many miles and oceans, helping as many people as possible.
Just Keep Breathing can be purchased in paperback and in ebook formats on Amazon, Barnes & Noble.

I have just recently finished the Kindle edition of this book in it’s first publication. It took me a while to read because the subject matter was emotionally painful to me on a personal level. I think Brock has done an admirable job of passing on the depth of feeling and the honest consequences to the entire family that this tragedy brought about. Even though time heals to a degree, some of the effects will never go away. The hole in my heart that Lewis’ passing caused is always there, lurking just below the surface and when it is exposed through certain memory, or as in the reading of Brock’s book, “Just Keep Breathing,” tears immediately follow.
If you have suffered through such a loss as the suicide of a family member or close friend, reading this book will help you realize that you are not alone. The subject of suicide is so easily pigeonholed into certain catagories. Each person is a distinct individual and does not need to be placed on a statistical grid line so that the rest of us can respond more easily. Why does it happen? Only one person can answer that question. I have asked but the one whom I lost to suicide is no longer here to tell me,
